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 plenty of parking and room to listen to some great classic rock tunes, so bring your lawn chairs and enjoy a great night in Effingham.

For more information on the Friday night event, contact the Effingham Tourism department at 217-342-5310 or visit www.VisitEffinghamIL.com.
