Event Description


Join the City of Shaker Heights and Drive Electric NEO for an electric vehicle showcase at The Van Aken District (the vehicles will be parked in the marked area between Walgreens and the RTA Rapid/Bus Station).  Come out to see a wide variety of electric vehicles, speak to their owners and daily drivers, and also enjoy Shaker Heights' "Touch a Truck" family-friendly event where kids (of all ages) can touch, climb and explore all kinds of trucks and vehicles from Shaker’s Police, Fire, Public Works, and Recreation departments and Shaker Schools and Library. Plus, crafts and other family-friendly activities throughout the day.  Stay and enjoy the Market Hall or one of the District's many restaurants for lunch (and ice cream!).

LOCATION:  If you are showing your EV, please park in the concrete area on either side of the white FIAT 500e.  There will be banners and signs directing you.
