Thank you to our friends at ESOTERIC for hosting a fine morning on Saturday! We packed their lot, and several nearby, with many of the hottest cars in Columbus for another successful Columbus Cars and Coffee meet!
Turnpoint Church in Groveport held their second annual Community Connect event, starting with a Columbus Cars and Coffee meet!
We brought a diverse group of muscle, classic, exotic, and race cars to kick off the successful, family-friendly day at Turnpoint.
Thanks to the entire Turnpoint Church community for inviting us to be part of their special event!
We've always known that the Arena District is one of our most popular locations. That was the response in a survey we ran late last year, but you don't need to have survey results to see that people LOVE being on Nationwide Boulevard in the heart of the city for Columbus Cars and Coffee!
We want to send a big THANK YOU to Nationwide Realty Investors for partnering with us on the return of the Arena District Meet, we truly could not do the event without their support.
In addition, Libertas Wealth Management presented the event this year, and we thank Adam and his colleagues for making these opportunities possible!
Of course, the entire season would not be possible without our season sponsors; MAG, ESOTERIC, Di Lusso Real Estate, Premier Bank, The Garage Door Guy, and Libertas Wealth Management. Please support these great companies!
DJ Axcess and Backroom Coffee Roasters each contributed to the atmosphere with their respective talents and they deserve our recognition as well.
A highlight of the show this year, Genius Garage brought their Lotus T125 and their Lykan HyperSport to share with us. Thanks to Casey and Taylor Putsch and their team for making the trip to Columbus. We always enjoy seeing them!
Finally, a special shout out to Kristen McEnery, our project manager and coordinator of all permits and paperwork. Kristen works behind the scenes to make these large-scale events happen and her talents are vital to our success. Thank you, Kristen!
Until next time...
We were flattered to be asked by Polaris Fashion Place to bring a Cars and Coffee meet to their location on Fathers Day weekend.
The mall is a great, central location within the city, with nearly limitless parking, so we knew the turnout would be excellent for the event.
Wow, the turnout was truly amazing. The perfect, mild weather helped to bring 400+ cars to the meet, ranging from a Lola T70 to a McLaren 765LT Spider and an incredibly diverse array of cars in between.
Thanks to all of the car owners who participated, and thanks as always to our amazing season sponsors!
Our first Members Only event of the year, reserved for our 100 VIP members, was a great success!
The day started with coffee and bagels at ESOTERIC followed by a 2-hour drive NE to Dundee, Ohio for a tour of the Created Hardwood workshop. Phil and his team from Created Hardwood showed us the many stunning products they're making.
After the tour and a cutting board giveaway, we drove about 30 minutes to Wooly Pig Farm Brewery for lunch.
Thanks to everyone who joined us for this event, and special thanks to Todd Cooperider at ESOTERIC, Phil Hicks at Created Hardwood, and the entire team at Wooly Pig Farm Brewery for helping to make our Saturday so much fun!

Todd, Zack, and Dan from ESOTERIC always roll out the red carpet for our meets. From amazing display cars to interesting product displays and demos, these guys know how to host a Cars and Coffee meet!
The weather wasn't exactly on our side this morning, with chilly temps and intermittent rain, but we made the most of it and had a respectable turnout with plenty of great cars to look at.
Midwestern Auto Group brought their Ferrari Roma and one of BMW's latest models, the iX while The Garage Door Guy served the coffee!
Thanks to everyone who joined us today!
Season 14 is here and brought with it a record turnout at MAG!
We completely filled the Midwestern Auto Group campus from end to end with all kinds of cars thanks to a beautiful day and lots of pent up demand for Columbus Cars and Coffee season to begin in Central Ohio.
While the cars rolled in for two hours, DJ Axcess kept the music going as Backroom Coffee Roasters kept the coffee flowing.
Thanks to our season sponsors for making it all possible!
Be sure to support these amazing local companies:
Midwestern Auto Group
Di Lusso Real Estate
Libertas Wealth Management

We'll see you May 7 at ESOTERIC!
Welcome to our 14th season, something I could never have imagined back in 2009 when we first started!
This year represents an opportunity to return to normal as the threat of the pandemic fades into the rearview mirror. I'm thrilled to announce the return of a couple of our most popular events, such as the Arena District Meet which will be presented by Libertas Wealth Management, along with new events, like a meet at Polaris Fashion Place and one at the headquarters of Meyer Shank Racing, the 2021 Indy 500 champions.
We're also introducing our first-ever membership program this season! Your VIP membership unlocks special events, drives, etc. as well as discounts from select partners. Memberships are limited to 100 people, include a numbered membership card, and can be purchased here. All member-only events will be published on a private, members-only schedule, none of the events on our regular schedule will ever require membership to attend.
Season 14 would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and we're honored to welcome back Midwestern Auto Group, ESOTERIC, Premier Bank, Libertas Wealth Management, and Di Lusso Real Estate! These companies are the backbone of our community and we can't thank them enough.
Please make sure you support all of these great companies, we truly could not host full seasons of events without their support.
Season 14 begins April 23 at Midwestern Auto Group, I can't wait to see everyone there.
See you soon,
Founder, Columbus Cars and Coffee
