National Drive Electric Week
Sep 21, 2019

Event ReportWe have had an event at Sullivan University ever since we first started having DEW events. Every year it grows. This year it grew substantially, resulting in a record-breaking (for Kentucky) 60 plus EVs in the parking lot! Also new for this year was a live band, food truck, frozen treat vendor, electric bus ride and face painting. All of this to both draw a bigger crowd and make it more of a stand-alone family-friendly event. We also boosted our FaceBook post. The weather was great and folks had a great time. Many stayed for the after event raffle and film.
We also were the destination for the first Lexington EV Convoy. They started in the morning and winded through many Kentucky towns and ended up arriving in Louisville at about the start time of our event. When the drivers entered the parking lot the crowd cheered!
Only thing that could have went better was keeping better track of EV rides. We had clipboards, but many weren't given out. Also, many participants didn't claim their shirts. But, overall, tons of positive feedback that this was our best DEW event yet.
The event is pending. Please visit the Attend page to find other National Drive Electric Week events.
