Welcome to the Best of the 217
We are excited to share our 2021 winners, as voted by you, our listeners. This magazine showcases the effort to discover and celebrate the businesses, people, and places we love most.
Our listeners and residents are proud of the state and communities they live in and know the area the best. That is why Illini Radio Group continues to deliver a “best of” program to help the community and support 217-area businesses.
Producing a contest this size takes a dedicated local team and committed businesses. We are humbled and thank all of our advertisers who made this possible.
We had 1,750 individuals and companies competing to be named in the top two spots of 222 categories.
