Event Report

The Electric Vehicle Fall Festival was bigger and better this year! We wish to thank our sponsors, volunteers, and staff for all their hard work preparing for and executing this event. Without the support of Dominion Energy, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, and so many more it's safe to bet that we would not have had the day of fun and excitement that we did.

Thank you!

Event Description


The EV Fall Festival is more than just a car show, more than a track day, more than the traditional auto show... it's all of them! Members of the public who haven't made the shift to being an EV owner will experience a variety of EVs from auto manufacturers that will provide a traditional "Ride and Drive" experience. We will have a course plotted on public roads in the area around the Raceway to give non-owners a true experience of how an EV drives. In addition, these attendees will be able to speak with our many vendors and EV owners to get a more rounded understanding of EV ownership. The goal is simple, affect change in the mind and encourage EV adoption to those who haven't made the shift. EV Owners who attend the EV Fall Fest will have a different experience. For these VIPs they will have the opportunity to enter their EV in a car show judged by members of the public, drive at speed around the DR Road Course, and launch down the 1/8th mile drag strip. For EV owners, we want a day packed with the thrill and excitement of EV performance. EV owners will also be encouraged to sign up to be an EV Ambassador and share their experience of EV ownership with non-owner attendees.

General Admission is $10 until the end of July, August and forwards will be $15.
Tickets can be found on Eventbrite for the event "Electric Vehicle Fall Festival 2022 by EV Resource". Please contact the local event organizer for a link to the Eventbrite page.
