Join us at Portland's National Drive Electric Week Car Show and Street Fair for a celebration of the benefits of electric vehicles.
Meet electric vehicle owners, see some of the many battery-powered vehicles now on the market, learn about some of the EV-friendly businesses in the region, all while enjoying some free cake!*
We’re also holding a little contest with prizes for whoever brings the:
