|Day:||Saturday, September 17, 2016 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
|Time:||10:00 am - 4:00 pm|

19950 Fisher Ave
(Parking lot across from Basset's Restaurant)
Poolesville, MD 20837
It was AWESOME!!! More than 90 vehicles, 22 models!
Our Poolesville event has grown to become the largest NDEW event on the east coast, thanks to the support of the Town of Poolesville, the Poolesville Day committee, and local Electric Vehicle (EV) organizations like MD Volt (http://MDVolt.org/), but mostly through the enthusiastic EV owners who share their time, their vehicles and their experiences with the general public. This year we had few members from the Star Wars 501st Stormtroopers, Maryland Old Line Garrison, and George Washington from the Washington Nationals Racing Presidents and an Abraham Lincoln, which provided some great photo opportunities.
We had dealerships, like DARCARS Nissan, King Volkswagen, Sheehy Ford, BMW of Rockville and KIA of America (who brought several cars, staff. goodies and tent). Jim Alvis, Government Affairs for Kia Motors America Corp and Genovation Cars founder and CEO Andrew Saul, maker of the record breaking Corvette GXE attended.
