Event ReportWent well, lots of interest in buying electric vehicles. Attendance was down about 30% from last year for a good reason. Nearby Tacoma and Olympia now have event sponsored by two of the areas large electric utility. Having NDEW Steilacoom in early September is good because of better weather an to not compete with the Town's annual Apple Squeeze the 1st week in October. Will do it again next year the Saturday after Labor Day because it is fun and a lot of learning from everyone.
All attendees and volunteers are required to wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all National Drive Electric Week 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.
Welcome to our annual NDEW Steilacoom VI (Yes, our 6th event already)!
Our venue will be almost the same as last year, except no guest speakers at the town hall. Event will again be in historic downtown Steilacoom (oldest municipality in the State of Washington--1854). Event is centered at the Tennis Courts with parking spots for electric vehicles along the closed to through traffic Lafayette, and Wilkes Streets). We will have enough parking for 130 electric vehicles which is our 2019 goal and parking in other parts of town for visitors. Event will start at 11 AM and finish at 3 PM. We will have many Electric Vehicle themed vendor booths.
