Crystal Cove Cars And Coffee Canceled - sign

Crystal Cove Cars And Coffee events were back – until 3/6/21.  That’s when attendees saw sandwich boards like the one pictured above everywhere.  And it’s a real shame too because the picture below shows tons of people enjoying the event.

But keep reading!  Because you have lots of Cars And Coffee options!

Crystal Cove Cars And Coffee Canceled - crowd

Crystal Cove canceled effective Marth 13th, 2021

Here’s the backstory; in October of last year, I was alerted that Crystal Cove had started up again.  It had previously been running for a while and shut down, restarted, and shut down again.  So I made my way out and it was great.  There were loads of cars.  And they were mostly sweet collector cars.  However, being in Newport Beach, California, there were also plenty of exotics and high-value oddities too.

October 2020 – Crystal Cove

And at that time, only a third of the parking lot was being used for display cars.  So you could literally be the jerk that takes-up spaces parking the car you drove there because it just wasn’t that busy.  To be clear, I’m not suggesting you do that!  Rather I’m highlighting the point – it wasn’t that busy, then.

March 2021 – Canceled

Fast-forward to February of 2021.  I noticed thousands of people searching iDriveSocal for info on Crystal Cove.  So, I decided it was time for another check-up on the event.  And, I made my way there Saturday, March 6th.  Ironically, it was the very date of the cancelation notices being posted.

What Happened To Crystal Cove C&C?

In short, it got too big.  It was always loosely organized.  No official website.  And no social media channels that I’m aware of.  Sadly, I think iDriveSoCal might have contributed to the problem of the event getting too big.  And that was definitely an unintended consequence.
