Announcing the Best of Butler County 2024 winners

For the second year, you helped us determine the best in Butler County.

We started our Best of Butler County contest last year to celebrate the great people, businesses and parts of life that make living and working here great. In its second year, you responded even stronger with a wider variety of businesses, people and events nominated in our categories.

Here are this year’s winners:

You might see a restaurant you haven’t been to yet and want to try. Or you might see a recommendation for a new plumber, roofer or someone to help you with needs at home or in your businesses.

The most inspiring part about operating a contest like this is seeing the huge variety of places and people that are nominated, and I’ve even found several new places that I want to try.

Thank you for your help in making the county great and recognizing its wonderful resources. If you have ideas for improving our contest or know of any person or business that should be recognized for what they’re doing for the county, contact me at
