Welcome to the 2020 Best of Northwest Arkansas Presented by Bassett Home Furnishings of Fayetteville

It is the one time of year that we ask our audience “who do you think is the best?” And this year, we had record-breaking participation. An undertaking of this size takes a team of talented individuals. We also want to thank our presenting sponsor for this year’s contest, Bassett Home Furnishings of Fayetteville.


We are excited to present this comprehensive look at the 569 businesses and individuals that our audience voted as the best for the services they provide to our area, residents, and visitors. There are a total of 738 awards being presented in 246 sub-categories.


This year, we added Agribusiness to the mix with our Agriculture category. It joins the other eight: Eat & Drink, Health & Beauty, Home & Garden, Services, Motors, Schools, Shopping, and Things to Do. We hope you visit our digital destination BestNWA.com now in its third year. Year-round you can find more about this year’s winners and past winners. We now have our ‘Red Star Ratings’ for all of our winners, the opportunity to rate and review your favorites all year long at BestNWA.com.


We encourage you to explore and engage with our winners. Some may be familiar, and some may be new to you. All will welcome your business as we continue to get back at it. I also encourage you to engage with us online at www.nwaonline.com and through a subscription to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
