Visit Effingham will be hosting the Corvette Funfest Pre-Party at the Effingham Performance Center from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, September 16, 2022. Corvette enthusiasts and residents are welcome to attend and help us kick off a weekend of classic cars!

Mid America Motorworks will lead a cruise-in to the Effingham Performance Center arriving at 5:00 p.m. The evening’s festivities will take place in the EPC’s courtyard. The event will feature live music from Doty and Dexter, as well as a few of our favorite food trucks, including Slow Spark BBQ and Homewood Grill.

“The Corvette Funfest Pre-Party is a great opportunity for us to welcome visitors to our community, but also, for residents to come and check out one-of-a-kind Corvettes and enjoy some unique entertainment,” said Tourism Director Jodi Thoele.

“There will be a lot of activity in town that weekend, and we hope everyone will come out and help us welcome the Corvettes to Effingham,” said Thoele.
