Event Report

We had about 125 people attend the event total ranging from registered attendees to people wondering in from signs posted to college students assigned by their professor to attend a local event (we were on the list). We had 5 vehicles in our official tailgate plus one dealer Leaf giving Ride and Drives and then another 30 or so EVs parked outside of the lot at our venue.

We invited other businesses to participate so beyond our Drive Electric Columbus/Clean Fuels Ohio table, we also had tables filled with information from Lime (electric scooters, including one to ride), Smart Columbus, AEP, and Buckeye Nissan (who brought 2 new Leafs, one wrapped for showcase and one for the Ride and Drive). We also had a local comic artist who drew caricatures for the evening which was a big hit and she was even willing to draw their EVs.

Event Description


Stop by Land Grant Brewing Company to celebrate National Drive Electric Week. 

We will have EVs for you to see at our EV Tailgate and you can ask questions to EV drivers to see what it is really like to drive electric.  There will be yard games and a caricature artist so make sure you plan to hang out and have fun. 

We will also have information available from Clean Fuels Ohio, Drive Electric Columbus, AEP, Smart Columbus and Lime (electric scooter rentals).
