The City of Effingham’s Tourism Office will be hosting the Corvette Welcome Fest Downtown Party from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, September 17th, to kick-off Mid America Motorworks’ Annual Corvette Funfest, and residents are invited to join in welcoming Corvette enthusiasts to Effingham!

Mid America Motorworks’ Cruise-in will end in downtown Effingham with a Corvette parade coming down Jefferson Avenue and ending at the Courthouse square. The Corvettes are expected to arrive downtown around 5:30 p.m. and residents are invited to come out for the Corvette parade.

Activities that evening will include food from All Wrapped Up, Seven Rings Concessions and Toppins Soft Serve.

Corvette FunFest

September 17 - 18

Mid America Motorworks is dedicated to helping Corvette enthusiasts pursue their passion with their event, Corvette Funfest.

For Corvette Funfest 2021, they're taking it way back to when it all began, by mixing the tech and style of the 21st Century with the nostalgia and format of 1994. Just like the first year they welcomed the fans of America’s favorite sports car, Corvette Funfest will take place on the south side of our property. You’ll feel like you took a step back to the way car shows are supposed to be.
