Event Description

 

This is shaping up to be an epic event. Pre-register for an afternoon of electric vehicle fun featuring outdoor and indoor activities including a parking area for EVs, live music, ping-pong, food trucks, refreshments, beer and wine, and an electric vehicle accessories and parts showcase. We'll also have fun give-away items that should prove handy for electric vehicle owners including charging courtesy notices, charging hangtags, and more! The event is also family and dog friendly. Come by (rain or shine) as the site location, LauderAle, has a large indoor area and much of the event will be shaded under special tented areas in the parking lot area as well.
