Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions? We've got answers. Some of them, anyway. 

We'll be adding to this list over time, but this should help you get started. The website is new, so if you don't see your question here, let us know via email (support@carsandcoffeeevents.com) and we'll get back to you.

General Questions

Why did you start this website?

We got tired of searching online for car events.  We'd spend more time searching than we'd spend attending, so this was a natural evolution of our efforts. 

What areas of the country do you cover?

What areas don't we cover? But seriously, anyone, anywhere in the US or Canada can list their event. The filters built into the calendar will allow people to only see the areas that are of interest to them.

What does it cost to join?

There is no cost. The listings are provided free of charge to everyone.

What does it cost to list my event?

Same answer as above. Nothing.  All you have to do is sign up, create your account and add information about your event.

What kinds of events can I list?

If you're registered as an Organizer, you can list any kind of event that's related to cars or motorcycles. That includes cruise nights, cars and coffee events, car shows, automobile auctions, swap meets, tours, poker runs, coffee runs, autocross, car club events, etc. And if we've left some out, let us know wand we'll add them. 

Why aren't there any events listed near me in your calendar?

The short answer is that the website is new and it takes time for the people who organize events to learn about us. The slightly longer answer is that it depends on a lot of things including the time of year and where you're located.  We're a big country and there are fewer events in some areas of the northern states in the winter months than in some of the southern states. But if there are events in your area that you think should be listed, please ask the organizers to sign up here and add their listings. 

Email Questions

If I sign up for your emails, will you spam my inbox?

Absolutely not. During the colder months, we send one email at about 7:00 am on Tuesday mornings that lists upcoming events for the next 7 days. During the warmer months, we supplement that with an email on Friday that shows events happening on the weekend, and then one each on Saturday and Sunday mornings that lists events for that specific day.  If that's too much for you, you can always unsubscribe at any time.

Why doesn't the email I received list any events near me?

This one's a little more complicated. The way the calendar software was built, there wasn't a way to generate an RSS feed of events that could be filtered by state or city to populate the email template. Our developer build a custom program that allowed us to filter the feed to just your state, but radius mapping around a zip code was a much more complicated development project. UPDATE: As of November 1, 2022 - if all goes well and if you added your travel radius to your profile - the emails you receive will only show events in your desired travel radius.

I've updated my email profile, but I'm still not seeing events near me.

The way our system is built, the email we send will only have a list of events within the travel radius you selected when you signed up. So for example, if you selected "Up to 30 miles" as your desired travel radius, and you don't see any events, there could be events greater that 30 miles away - you just won't see them because you indicated you didn't want to travel that far. You can update your profile to increase the travel distance at any time by clicking the Manage Your Subscription link at the bottom of any of our emails.
Sign Up For A List of Events
Oh sure, you could come back here week after week to look for a list of car stuff to do, but why bother? 

Just insert your email in this handy form. We'll send you a list of car shows, cruises, coffee runs, etc. for the next 7 days every Tuesday morning with a follow-up of weekend events on Friday.

That should leave you plenty of time to polish the car.
