Curious about electric vehicles? How much do they cost, how much do they save, where do you charge? The EV Festival will have most models of electric cars to view and their owners to answer all your questions. Select models may be available for test drives. 

Or do you want to share your love for electric vehicles? Are you looking for another EV? Come to the EV Festival on Saturday, April 22, to meet other EV drivers and spread the word to non-EV drivers.
