The 2022 Happening List® is back!
This is time that the readers of Philly Happening take to recognize the amazing people, organizations, events & businesses that make living in Philly special.

Nominations in the annual Happening List® competition in Philly officially opened on January 4, 2021. Nominate your favorite local people, places, and businesses here. You can make nominations up until February 18th. On February 18th, voting “goes blind” and nominations close.

Voting kicks off on January 18, 2022 and continues through February 28, 2022.

New in 2022

We’ve decided to mix it up a little. This year, the Happenings Media Editorial team has selected the following categories to be pulled from the public voting.  These categories will be selected by an editorial committee.  The categories are:

Drink: Wine List
Everything Philly: New Business
People: Artist
People: Entrepreneur
People: Social Media Personality
Retail: Shopping Destination

Nominations in these categories will be taken into consideration by the editorial team.
