PHOTOS: Caffeine & Carburetors Returns to Waveny


Caffeine & Carburetors at Waveny—Oct. 17, 2021

Auto enthusiasts gathered at Waveny on a picture-perfect fall morning Sunday for the return of the popular Caffeine & Carburetors car show.

After all four installments of a popular antique and specialty car show had been canceled one year ago due to the pandemic, C&C returned to downtown New Canaan last month, and parks officials unanimously approved a final 2021 installment for Waveny.

“A large show with a great community showing,” Doug Zumbach said of Sunday’s C&C. “Extraordinary effort by volunteer staff to switch gears—no pun intended—to adjust parking direction due to lawn issue.”

Zumbach also praised New Canaan Police for their help.

He founded C&C more than a decade ago at Pine and Grove Streets downtown, outside his eponymous coffee shop.

Show sponsors include Bankwell, Miller Motor Cars, Vue New Canaan, Brown Harris Stevents, NC Squash, Fidelco, Zumbach’s, Riley Volvo of Stamford, Meccanic, Gaswerks Garage and Prestige Volkswagen of Stamford.

  1. New Canaan CERT since the beginning of the Caffeine and Carburetors being held in downtown New Canaan and Waveny Park, have staffed their volunteers for each of these events. We provide traffic and pedestrian control and have put in many hours for each event. It would be appreciated if New Canaan CERT was recognized by the event organizer, Doug.

    • You need to get your facts straight.
      Our host Peter thanked all participating sponsors and volunteers three times during the event as he did also back in the September event.
      On the C&C site you will find a post thanking once again all who help in the production of a C&C event! Cert is clearly mentioned.

  2. What a great way to showcase New Canaan for a few hours on a Sunday morning. The park was outstanding on Sunday with cool temps and sun breaking thru. A diverse crowd of people-from parents with children in strollers to seniors who like cars.
    An outstanding job by CERT, the police and volunteers making for a fun safe event for all. And thanks to the Waveny park crew for letting the residents drive on the open large field
