Corvette Funfest 2020 Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Virus
Due to an increasing number of positive COVID-19 cases within Effingham County, we have made the decision to cancel Corvette Funfest 2020. It was an incredibly tough decision, but it is the right choice. There are many reasons for making this difficult decision, but our main priority is to keep our Corvette family, our co-workers and their families, and our community safe during this pandemic.
If you have registered for the show, we are rolling all current registrations to Corvette Funfest 2021. We are already working hard to take this year’s plans and expand them for next year. Corvette Funfest 2021 will bring back the atmosphere and highlights that you have come to expect and love over the years.
If you would like to receive a credit on account to redeem in the MY Garage Museum and Retail Store, online, or over the phone in lieu of rolling your registration to next year, we will provide a promo code to extend your 10% discount from the show to your next purchase using that credit. Otherwise, a refund back to the original form of payment is available as well.
If you have any questions, you can call us at (800) 500-1500 and any of our representatives will be happy to help.
7.17.2020Saturday Evening Entertainment
The Saturday evening entertainment for Corvette Funfest 2020 is still currently in development and we will have updates available as soon as possible. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the music industry, resulting in numerous shows and tours being postponed or cancelled altogether. Because of this, many of the acts and performers we had been in discussion with earlier this year are having difficulty committing due to the uncertainty of their current schedules and state regulations. There will be live music for Saturday evening, but details are still being worked out at this time. Stay tuned for further updates!

7.16.2020Corvette Funfest 2020 Celebrates the Simpler Times
We keep hearing people say they want to get back to “normal.” At Corvette Funfest 2020, we want to get better than normal! This year, we’re throwing it back to when it all began, mixing the tech and style of 2020 with the nostalgia and format of 1994. Just like the first year we welcomed the fans of America’s favorite sports car, Corvette Funfest will take place on the south side of our property. While we’re taking the pandemic into consideration and scaling back the event to accommodate state recommended guidelines, you’ll feel like you took a step back to the way car shows are supposed to be. As always, we’re still making plans daily, checking in with vendors and suppliers, keeping an eye on recommendations and making plans to ensure that this will be the one weekend of the year that you definitely won’t want to miss!
