To All PCCC Members,
The Board of Directors of the Pepsi-Cola Collectors Club after much deliberation have made the decision to CANCEL Pepsi Fest 2021.
This was a very difficult decision to make, as we know that all of you, along with all of us were so looking forward to getting together with our Pepsi family. However, the COVID regulations, restrictions, and the still rather high number of cases in the Indianapolis area and their current Code Orange restrictions (no gatherings over 50), created too many obstacles to safely host and enjoy Pepsi Fest. We have also had several participants who have had to cancel due to return to work quarantine regulations that they could not afford to make.
Several of Pepsi Fest’s anticipated events would not be permitted (Room Hopping) or greatly altered or canceled (Silent Auction, Hospitality Room), and we would not be able to socialize as we are used to doing in the spirit of Pepsi Fest. There would be the added daily tasks of health screenings, temperature checks, and enforcing the wearing of face masks. We would have to advise per the Marion County Board of Health that all persons 65 years of age or older, and those with underlying health conditions would be asked to stay home. Therefore, we made the decision to cancel to keep our members safe and healthy, and not take away all the fun things we love about Pepsi Fest.
REGISTRATION & PACKETS
Once all the items that we have ordered to include in your Registration Envelopes, Registration Packets and merchandise have arrived (anticipated by the end of February), we will begin the process of packing and shipping all of your Packets and merchandise to you. There are nearly 80 packages to ship (even if you didn’t order a packet – all attendees were getting some goodies this year since it was the 35th Anniversary of Pepsi Fest) – so please be patient, as we hope to have them out to everyone in batches starting sometime the second week of March. You will receive an email when your package has shipped. We will be issuing refunds for unused Registration funds (NOTE: We did have advance expenses for the packets, Anniversary items, printed materials and shipping costs). We will not be crediting them towards Pepsi Fest 2022 as we did last year.
You will also receive in the next few weeks a notice about our Annual Meeting as we have the Business of Election of Officers to still complete for this year. Please watch for an email with instructions regarding voting either by email like last year, or we may get creative and schedule a Zoom conference call.
We are already actively planning for 2022 – so watch for those details as they are finalized and rolled out. It has not been fun missing out on two Pepsi Fests and all the other regional gatherings, hopefully as 2021 moves forward things will get better and 2022 will have us all once again celebrating everything PEPSI!!
We are very thankful for all your support and patience throughout the year and at all the PCCC events over the years.
Take Care – Stay Safe – Dew Have a Pepsi!

Pepsi Fest #33
PEPSI FEST #36 - Plans are in the Works!
Yahoo! Mountain Dew! - Pepsi Fest had a sub-theme this year as we celebrated 55 years of Mountain Dew as part of the Pepsi Family. Phillip Dillman presented an awesome seminar on the history of Mountain Dew. Along with our Silent Auction, Oral Auction, Pizza Party and Buffet Dinner (that we ate in by the light of flashlights and cellphones - as the wind blew down a pole outside the hotel), but it came back on in time for our Mini Collection displays and we topped off our final evening with a fantastic hat parade - over 30+ people participated. IF you missed it - you don't want to miss it next year ...

Pepsi Fest began in 1987, when members of the Pepsi Cola Collectors Club met in Indianapolis for the first time ever. It is held in March every year in Indianapolis, Indiana, with the exception of 1998, when Pepsi Fest was held in New Bern, North Carolina to celebrate Pepsi's 100th anniversary. Pepsi Fest is a three day event where collectors are given the opportunity to buy and trade from each other, attend seminars on Pepsi memorabilia, and get to know each other at social functions. The purpose of this event is to bring Pepsi collectors together from all over the world. The ultimate goal of the event is fun!
