Show Parking Guidelines

Caffeine and Octane stretches across multiple show lots. Gates open for show cars in the Central Lot & Exotics Lot as early as 7:30 am.  

The main lot (Central Lot) is controlled by gates and C&O staff manages access. The Central Lot includes the C&O Feature Area and other monthly themed special display areas. The goal of the Central Lot is to highlight featured & themed vehicles and still maintain variety by only allowing a certain number of the same makes & types of vehicles within this lot. C&O is an all-makes, all models show and the Central Lot is a reflection of that mission. Show cars can enter the Central Lot through Gate 2, Gate 3, or the Classics Only Gate 4.

**There are NO EXITS PRIOR TO 12:00 PM when parking in the Central Lot!

The Exotics Lot is controlled by gates and C&O staff manages access. The Exotics Lot is for cars commonly considered exotics and Porsche! Spaces in the Exotics Lot are first come first serve, but owners are free to arrive and leave this lot anytime during show hours. 

The Exhibit Lots are open to all makes and models on a first come first serve basis. This lot is not controlled by gates and C&O staff does not manage access. Vehicles in Exhibit Lot 1 or 2 may park earlier than 7:30 AM and leave anytime. This lot is typically used for very special daily drivers, those show cars that do not want to commit to staying until 12:00 PM, motorcycles, late arrivers, and group/car club parking (as we do not allow large groups to park together in the Central Lot).  

NO SPEEDING, NO REVVING, NO BURNOUTS, NO TWO-STEPPING! Please respect our neighbors and keep the noise to a minimum, so we can continue to hold C&O at Town Center Mall!

Only Official Caffeine and Octane sponsors are allowed to advertise at C&O. No other company signage, tents, or other promotional materials are allowed on site. Caffeine and Octane is made possible by sponsorship dollars. Without our loyal sponsors C&O would not happen. Please help C&O remain FREE FOR EVERYONE to enjoy by supporting our C&O Family of sponsors! For SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION please email info@highoctanevents.com
