The past 12 months have been an epic battle between Moore’s small businesses and COVID-19. It’s been a lot like watching those fantastic luchador battles between two colorful wrestlers, tossing each other around the ring!


In the spirit of those epic clashes, we would like to present introduce the “good guys”, the finalists for the 2021 Best of Moore and South OKC Awards! Along with the rest of Moore’s local businesses, they have emerged victorious over that evil COVID-19 luchador! We’re also excited to be able to reveal just a little about our plans for celebrating this year’s winners!


When we originally came up with the idea of these awards for our community, our intent was to go beyond the more common “vote-and-post-the-winners” presentation style. We wanted to celebrate and have fun with the folks who invest so much of their time and energy in bringing all these businesses to life in Moore and South OKC. We quickly discovered that all of you really enjoyed sharing an “Academy-awards-style” event with the rest of the community as much as we did.


That’s why we’re making a unique adjustment to this year’s big Best of Moore and South OKC event.


Everyone is fully aware of the impact the pandemic has had on local businesses over the past year. The truth is, we’re not quite to the point where we feel we can safely host a significant event with several hundred people. In addition to that, the only venue that can host the Best of Moore and South OKC Awards to a standard that we’ve come to expect is unavailable until August. That’s the Riverwind Casino’s Showplace Theater, which is currently undergoing renovations.


So, in the spirit of our community’s overcoming-mindset, we’ve decided to turn these obstacles into something even more celebratory! Here’s what we can tell you right now:


We are working on an interactive concept that will celebrate our finalists over the next few months. That concept will feature some really cool prizes and offer everyone in our community the chance to become engaged while connecting them with more information about our Best of Moore and South OKC finalists.


The thing is, we’re not quite ready to reveal the whole plan. So, we’re going to introduce you to the finalists in the April issue of the Moore Monthly…and then announce our plans for what’s next in May, including a full-on party, celebration, and revealing of the 2021 winners at Riverwind’s Showplace Theater in August!


Stay with us, friends! The best is yet to come!
