As is the case in most areas these days, local and CDC Guidelines for groups and restaurants in NC change as COVID infection rates change. Knowing that everything could change at any time, we have created a tentative ECPC Program. We are exploring alternatives that will allow us to gather yet stay socially distant so that we can meet local requirements. EVERYTHING IS FLEXIBLE! Currently, registrations already received by ECPC are at the maximum allowed group size. Hopefully, changes will allow us to accommodate other registrations received after March 31st

NOTE: ECPC cannot guarantee safety, but will request that you wear masks, maintain social distancing and follow other COVID safety precautions to protect yourselves and your fellow Pepsi Collectors. Hopefully, access to the COVID vaccine will be available to all who want it by early May. If you, or anyone in your group, is not feeling well, please do not attend.
No matter what the local guidelines may be, only you can make health decisions for yourself and your family members.
Please respect the decisions and requests of fellow attendees, especially when visiting their rooms.
If you have any concerns, this might not be the year to attend.
(Refunds will be given to anyone ‘ECPC registered’ deciding not to attend)

Established in July 2008 with the 110th Pepsi-Cola Birthday Bash in New Bern, NC. Without a 'web' of East Coast Clubs to support us, we began with small picnics, antiquing and Show and Tell. We pick locations along the East Coast that have some connection with Pepsi's history whenever possible. New Bern was the obvious place to have a kick-off event. The event is in July each year and the locations changes. All are welcome, but our main goal is to find East Coast members who have not been able to get to Indy for Pepsi Fest or would like to attend a second event closer to home!
