Upcoming Events

2014 Holiday Classic - November 23rd


It is time for our annual Holiday Classic Business and Craft Expo and plans are well underway for this year's event to be held Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 at Effingham County High School from 12:00 noon to 4:00 PM.  

Our Marketing and Events Committee is dedicated to having a quality event and is proposing an expansion to bring additional venues and more people.  The ultimate goal remains to provide you and your business exposure as well as the opportunity to sell your products and services.  Old favorites to return are business booths, arts and crafts, holiday meal, and pictures with Santa.  We are again able to offer this event free of admission charges.  

The Effingham County 4-H Club will sponsor the delicious holiday meal and have engaged the school lunch staff to prepare the meal.  Tickets can be obtained for $9 each at the Georgia Extension office by calling (912) 754-8040 or at the Effingham Chamber of Commerce by calling (912) 754-3301.  Please make sure to purchase your meal tickets in advance.  Door tickets did sell out last year.

To participate please complete the following:

·         - Read Letter of Agreement and sign your name on the Signature Page 

·         - Complete Entrance Form 

·         - Select the booth from the enclosed diagram 

·         - Return all forms to the Chamber office with your entrance fee

Space is limited and reservations will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis so make your reservations as soon as possible.   Please feel free to contact the Chamber if you have questions. We will not have pipe and drape this year and each vendor must bring their own table. This was done last year for the first time and worked out well.

We anticipate a great event and look forward to hearing from you!
