Get ready for the most electrifying event of the year! The Electric Vehicle Festival 2023 is returning to Dominion Raceway in Thornburg, VA for our third year.  VCC and Drive Electric Virginia have worked with stakeholder EV-Resource to run this successful event annually. Use the Register button above to get a 10% off code for the racetrack entry and help VCC with our program.

Located just off of I-95 exit 118, Dominion Raceway is the perfect centralized location to showcase the excitement of electric vehicles. The location features a two-mile road course, 4/10th mile NASCAR Oval, and 1/8th mile drag strip. We’ll be utilizing all of these tracks to provide our attendees with an unforgettable experience.

The Electric Vehicle Festival is more than just a track day or a car show – it’s an interactive event with something for everyone. Our guests will have the opportunity to experience and compare the latest EVs and get rides with EV owners around the racetrack. With more than 250,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor vendor and display space, there will be plenty of opportunities to speak with vendors and EV owners, attend educational presentations and discussions, and learn about the latest sustainable energy solutions.

For EV owners, we have an extra special experience in store. Enter your EV in our car show, judged by members of the public. Take your car to the limits as you drive at speed around the DR Road Course and launch down the 1/8th mile drag strip. And don’t forget to sign up to be an EV Ambassador and share your experience of EV ownership with non-owner attendees.

The goal of the Electric Vehicle Festival is simple – we want to celebrate the fun and excitement of EVs and encourage EV and Sustainable Energy adoption to those who haven’t yet made the shift. Join us for a day packed with the thrill and excitement of EV performance, and learn how transitioning to electric transportation and sustainable energy solutions can make a difference. We promise a day full of fun, education, and pure joy. See you there!
