Funfest Events

Each year Mid America Motorworks hosts several high profile events on its 170 acre Effingham, IL corporate campus. Whether you’re a Corvette enthusiast, classic Air-Cooled VW aficionado or a bargain hunter looking out for automotive parts, accessories and memorabilia, we’re the premiere entertainment destination for you!
Mid America Motorworks began in 1974 when Mike Yager, a Corvette lover, began selling Corvette accessories at car shows. Perhaps it was that early start at events that has led Mid America Motorworks to become an entertainment destination for automotive enthusiasts around the world.
