    No, fishinthetree, there is no need to omit "of" in that sentence. The phrase is normal: the most entertaining of events = an event that is more entertaining than every other event.

    Is that phrase necessary? No.
    Does "the most entertaining event" mean the same thing? Yes.
    Do you need to change "the most entertaining of events"? No.
    Would it be fine to use "the most entertaining event" in your own speech and writing? Yes.
