National Drive Electric Week - Durham
|Day:||Saturday, September 16, 2017 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the events page.|
|Time:||12:30 PM - 2:00 PM (Public) & 11:30AM (EV drivers)|
Wagon Hill Farm
156 Piscataqua Rd
Durham, NH 03824
Our event runs at Wagon Hill Farm in coordination with our annual town fair. As a result, hundreds of residents flow through our upper meadow vehicle display area on their way to a large free BBQ, live music, many informational displays, and a beautiful waterfront scene. As a result, we get not only 20 electrical vehicle enthusiasts and car shoppers hoping to see many EVs in one place, but also each year attract new converts to the electric vehicle fold as they walk by on their way to the lunch tables. A festive happy atmosphere predominates and we highly recommend this as a model for increasing the visibility of area EVs. Our sister event in Portsmouth also went well as it was easier to access for dealers and very well managed. Most of us left the Durham event at 2PM and arrived in Portsmouth increasing their number of cars on display and supporting the dealers with user/owner testimonials.
