Effingham Central Business Group

Effingham's thriving downtown provides unique shopping opportunities and dining experiences in addition to a wide range of professional and government services. It is home to the Effingham County Courthouse Museum, Effingham County Government Center and Effingham City Hall as well as the nostalgic Heart Theatre, Effingham Public Library and Santa's House.

Downtown Effingham is the site of many fun and family-oriented events that have become perennial favorites, including the Farmers Market, Effingham Artisan Fair, EffingHAM JAM, VW and Corvette Funfest opening activities and Old Settler’s Reunion.

Members of the Effingham Central Business Group sponsor several events throughout the year that bring locals and out-of-town guests downtown. In 2015, the group will host these great events:

  • Spring Fling: Saturday, May 14, 2016
  • Taste of Freedom: Friday, June 17, 2016
  • Chili Fest: Friday, October 14, 2016
  • Trick or Treat: Saturday, October 29, 2016
  • Hometown Christmas: Saturday, November 26, 2016

Membership is open to downtown business owners and managers and those who have an interest in keeping Effingham’s central business district strong and growing. Regular monthly meetings are held the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Village Wine Shop.
