Event Report

As in past years the event was done in combination with the Vancouver, Washington Peace and Justice Fair as sponsored by the Sierra Club. The event brings together many people often with an interest in their environmental impact and who align well with EV technologies. This year's even also brought out a great mix of vehicles from the high end of a Tesla Model X and S down to a used Nissan Leaf the owner had purchased for $6500.

We also had a couple volunteers offering rides and drives with a around 36 rides/drives given through out the day.

We have been able to grow the event year over year and expect to bring out even more people and vehicles next year.

Event Description


Welcome to our third annual Drive Electric Week held in conjunction with the Peace and Justice Fair in Esther Short Park. Come join EV owners on the bricked plaza around the Clock Tower as we share our enthusiasm for this FUN technology and spread the word about these great cars.  We are so happy to have some owners volunteering their time for a third year, so you know this is a fun event!  Once you have owned an electric vehicle, you will become a believer too.  Join us for a test ride in a Tesla model 3 or take a test drive in an EV provided by Platt Auto and be entered to win a gift card to Chucks Produce!

If you want to take GREEN to the next level, A&R Solar will be there with all your answers.  They are a B Corp, which means they are employee owned and totally groovy!

If you have a VW, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, or other vehicle that is underrepresented, PLEASE JOIN US.

If you are interested in bringing your EV to the event, please register using the button at the top of this page. For safety, vehicles must stay parked for the full event, from 10:00 -- 14:00, but that doesn't mean that you can't walk around and enjoy the Peace and Justice Fair or buy food at the farmers market!  Thank you once again to the local Loo Witt Chapter of the Sierra Club for sponsoring our event!  We couldn't do it without you.
