Event Description


The Santa Barbara County National Drive Electric Week Event will be held at the Goleta Lemon Festival on Sunday, September 21st, from 10 am - 3 pm.  

We will have a dozen or so different types of electric vehicles with owner volunteers that are excited to talk to their neighbors about driving electric.  We expect to have a significant amount of walk by traffic during this large festival, so if you can volunteer to display your vehicle (or help out for a couple hours relieving the owner, or other activities), please contact the organizers.  The focus of this event will be reaching out to the mass market with the message that EVs are affordable, fun to drive, and much greener than a gas car. 

Santa Barbara County Drive Electric Week event is hosted by the Community Environmental Council, learn more about electric vehicles on the Central Coast at
