Event Description


The Sandhills Drive Electric Week event is hosted by Sustainable Sandhills, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization striving to create resilient environmental, economic and social resources in the region surrounding Fayetteville.

This event is part of the annual National Drive Electric Week taking place in over 200 cities nationwide and an opportunity to promote the myriad benefits of plug-in vehicles in cities coast to coast. Over 500,000 new plug-in vehicles have been sold in the United States, and several new models are in development. Plug-in vehicles have enabled tens of millions of miles of cleaner, oil-free driving. Drive Electric Week events - such as parades, electric vehicle tailgate parties, test-ride events and press conferences - will occur in cities nationwide on September 26th to October 4th. 

Our Drive Electric Week event will be a fantastic way to connect the many plug-in electric car drivers in the area and educate the public and policymakers about new innovations and opportunities in this arena. In addition, we also plan to invite the media and will consist of a car show and tailgate along with food vendors, music and raffle prizes. We believe this is a great opportunity for you to expose your business to our community.
