Downtown Effingham Business Group

Shop - Eat - Play

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 Downtown Effingham Business Group sponsor several events throughout the year that bring locals and out-of-town guests downtown. In 2018, the group will host these great events:

  • Trick or Treat: Saturday, October 26
  • Hometown Christmas: Fri., Nov. 30, Sat. Dec. 1, and Sun., Dec. 2
