Event Report

Unfortunately, the venue would not allow test drives this time, even from a parking lot off site.  We also had to contend with heavy rain the first hour or so, and the market itself was therefore very empty as compared to prior events at this Sunday farmers market.  Despite this, most of the registered cars attended, the market allowed our cars and tents to be put up under some cover and we did have public visitors and interest and the owners enjoyed each other's company!

About half the cars on display (the others are on the other side of the structure). Some of the other photos are publically available on the facebook link given in the form. Most of the other photos were on our closed group facebook site (Kansas City EV and Plug-In Vehicle Enthusiasts) and ( Kansas City Tesla Enthusiasts Club). The event was also supported by our local Kansas City Tesla Owners Club (

Event Description


On Sunday, Sept 22, register and bring your EV to the River Market and help show the crowds what makes EVs so special. It’s a great way to spread the word about driving electric, and an opportunity to spend time with fellow EV drivers. All EV and plug-in models are welcome.  Art of the Machine participants receive a collectible dash plaque.
