Voting is now open for the 2021 Columbus Parent Family Faves reader poll. For the 11th year, we’re seeking your opinions on the best family-friendly businesses, dining, activities and events in Central Ohio.

There are 42 categories, each of which has multiple nominees—a list made up of those who earned at least 5 percent of the vote in last year’s survey. (In cases where a business closed, we substituted the next-highest vote-getter.) Each question also has an option to write in your own choice if your favorite isn’t listed.

Voting closes at noon July 2. There is a limit of one ballot per person. Cast yours in the poll below.

Nominees (or anyone who wants to launch a write-in campaign) can download Family Faves marketing materials, including an 8.5- by-11 poster and printable fliers to give to customers, at

Winners, plus runners-up and honorable mentions, will be revealed in our Fall issue.

Thanks for helping us recognize some of the best family-friendly spaces and places in Central Ohio!
