Event Report

We kept this event very informal and though it was small, everyone who attended stayed the entire time (longer, actually) and seemed to enjoy themselves. Since EVs are newer to the area, most drivers are just getting acquainted with the EV community and deciding how much they want to get involved. Now that this first event has taken place, many folks expressed interest in getting together again, so I'm hopeful the momentum will continue for a larger and more structured event next year. (And in the meantime I'm also going to put some pressure on my friend at the venue's management company to install chargers!)

One personal highlight is that we had 3 previous MINI E drivers attend the event, with one couple driving over 100 miles to join us in their Spark EV. Though the MINI E program had its share of issues, it definitely connected us with some great people with whom we remain friends 7 years later.

Event Description


Valencia is driving electric!  

Please join local Santa Clarita EV drivers and enthusiasts for a casual meet-up the evening of Saturday, September 12. Whether you drive electric to preserve natural resources, love new technology, enjoy fun driving, or ALL of the above you are part of the EV revolution! And if you are considering an EV in the future, please stop by to learn more, speak with longtime EV owners and possibly go for a test drive/ride.

Saturday, September 12
5:00 - 7:00 pm
26573 Carl Boyer Drive in the Centre Pointe Shopping Center

We will be gathering in conjunction with Food Truck Saturdays in the parking lot near Dick's Sporting Goods and Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts. There are typically 8-10 food trucks that show up each week. Unfortunately, there are no charging stations within the shopping center complex (but events like these are great motivators to get them installed.)  

Hope you can make it for some fun, food and fellow EV talk!
