Corvette, Funfest, Small Stage, Allie Colleen, Saturday Night, Concert A quick Google search of "Allie Colleen" will show you that this up and coming singer/songwriter's pedigree is no joke.

Mid America Motorworks is thrilled to welcome Allie Colleen to Corvette Funfest 2018.

The 21-year-old will join us at 10:00am for Opening Ceremonies on Saturday morning on the Funfest Stage, performing The National Anthem. Colleen will also be the featured artist, preforming a set during the Country Style Dinner on the Small Funfest stage on Saturday evening.

Corvette Funfest guests are encouraged to preorder tickets for the Country Style Dinner, before they sell out. Guests can order an ice-cold drink at the Funfest Cantina, which will stay open during Colleen's set.

The Allie Colleen performance is FREE to all Corvette Funfest guests and open to the public. Don't miss your chance to see this up and coming musician during Corvette Funfest 2018!
