Event Report

The Pleasantville NY 2018 Drive Electric event was an EV Showcase held inside Westchester County's Biggest and Most Popular Farmers Market. We surpassed our 2017 attendee numbers which was AWESOME! Only complaints were EVs drivers shut-out due to limited space for EVs. We were limited to displaying 5 EVs by Farmers Market, but we have massive turn-out, so I'm fine with it. We had about 10 Volunteers and a few special visitors (95th produced green Tesla Roadster, a few more Model 3's, and Bolts).

- Tesla Model 3
- Tesla Model X
- Chevy Bolt
- Smart Electric
- Ford Focus Electric

Entering and Passing Through our EV Showcase Space was 1,905 (this does NOT count people leaving via our exit)
Total Farmers Market Attendance for this Sat Sept 8th Event: 3,288

Event Description


The event takes place at the Pleasantville Farmers Market (Outdoor). We're hoping for a BIGGER audience this year. In 2017 the market had over 2,500 people in attendance that NDEW Saturday. Our entrance alone had over 1,700 people walk by our electric vehicle (EV) Showcase. This is a HUGE opportunity to communicate with non-EV people. Even if you do not have an EV, we still need volunteers to talk to all the people. There will be a LOT. Kids are welcome, this is a very family friendly venue. Here is the overall schedule:

8:30am-12:30pm EV Showcase + Farmers Market Open (people show up early and we need the EVs in place BEFORE the market starts)
9:30am-11am Kids: Description: Artists Greg and Kat Nemec will help your children create a fun arts & crafts project. [free]
10am-12pm Music: The Forget-Me-Nots is a 3-woman trio featuring hand-made harmony, distinctive voices, and a repertoire of originals and acoustic covers. [free]
