If you’re in search of the best place on the North Shore of Boston to dine on the water, where to indulge in delicious ice cream, which summer festivals and concerts are tops, or who to go to for the latest fashions, the August 2017 issue of Northshore magazine delivers.

The 12th annual Best of the North Shore (BONS) Awards celebrates the magazine’s editors’ and readers’ picks for the North Shore’s best dining, nightlife, entertainment venues, shopping, spas, and services. Each year, local businesses and events are nominated and voted on by the editors and readers of Northshore. Over 155,000 votes were tabulated to determine this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards and more than 250 organizations are recognized as BONS 2017 winners across 170 sub-categories. Several new subcategories were also added this year, including crudo, raw bar, and small plates.

From fashionistas to food critics, our team tastes, sips, samples, and shops for months to compile the BONS 2017 list.

Nancy E. Berry, Editor, Northshore magazine

“The August BONS issue is our biggest and brightest of the year—our BONS committee researchers over the course of 12 months to vet the Editors’ Choice Awards,” says Nancy E. Berry, editor of Northshore. “From fashionistas to food critics, our team tastes, sips, samples, and shops for months to compile the BONS 2017 list.”

BONS Editors’ and Readers’ Choice winners will be recognized at the 4th Annual BONS Celebration, presented by Northshore and sponsored by By The Sea Sotheby’s, Salem Five, and 36 Creative. The event takes place on Thursday, August 24, 2017, at the oceanfront White Court Estate in Swampscott. General admission and VIP tickets are available for purchase starting at $90 to $150.
