Event Report

Our event took place at the Saint Louis Science Center. We had a state university bring a 100% solar car that was very popular. We also had a local motor cycle dealers ship bring Zeros to the show. For the kids we had face painting and a photo booth.

Event Description

 

Join us at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium in Forest Park for this FREE Electric Vehicle Car show. This is a family friendly atmosphere where you can learn more about Electric Vehicles. 

Curious about how an EV feels to ride in? Local Tesla owners will be giving free rides through Forest Park in their cars. 

Motorcycle riders welcome too! Bring your license (with motorcycle endorsements) and test drive a Zero, a fully electric motorcycle. 

Dealerships will be around to answer pricing questions, and tons of EV owners willing to give you testimonials about their cars. We will also have unique home conversion cars to check out as well! 

Photo booth, with props, will be available at the event.

Have a plug in vehicle? Register it now and join us to show off your car. We welcome anything that plugs in. This includes factory produced cars (Leafs, Volts, Teslas, etc.) as well as conversion cars, motorcycles, or other cool electric vehicles. 

This is a free rain or shine event.
