An annual benefit event for Hospice of Dubuque which recognizes the area's best products, services, food, and entertainment

BestFest is happening Thursday, March 22 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Grand River Center in Dubuque.

Tickets to BestFest 2018 are sold out. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Hospice of Dubuque, which has been providing compassionate care to terminally ill and their loved ones for over 30 years in the tri-state area.

How is it determined who serves the best burger, provides the best salon experience, or best golf course? During January, tri-state residents cast their votes for the best businesses in a range of categories. Why? Businesses who receive the most votes are declared the "Best of the Tri-States" and invited to display and provide samples of their best products at the BestFest event.

Questions about BestFest may be directed to Hospice of Dubuque at (563) 582-1220.
