    Building on our very successful participation last year we have signed up for vendor space at the "Taste of the Harvest" which has between 12,000 and 15,000 attendees each year. We are looking for EV owners who might be interested in providing drives/rides. Our plan is to have a display of electric powered equipment like ATVs and lawn care tools at the main space with the EVs parked at the convention center parking area. We will use our Polaris Ranger EV Li to move people from the main space to the ride/drive area.

    If you are interested in participating post here or PM me. We can help with L3/L2 charging and hospitality.

    What: National Drive Electric Week: Wenatchee (Part of "Taste of the Harvest 2016")
    Where: Downtown Wenatchee on "closed to traffic" Wenatchee Avenue.
    When: 17 September from about 10 AM til we go home.

    I can't make it this year because of my son's wedding.

    But I can confirm the Taste of the Harvest is a great venue! I had fun last time.

    @JackA, I might be able to show my Roadster at this event, but I'm not interested in giving test drives/rides, which is what you're specifically looking for. Let me know if my attendance would be useful to you.

    We would appreciate you and your Roadster! We will ensure that it is a static display "on the Ave" as a crowd draw, the rides and drives are from the large municipal parking lot which is about one block away. Hope you can make it!

    Sorry, @JackA, I made a commitment earlier today for another Saturday event (not NDEW). :(

    Keep posting events; I'll likely be available for several of them! :)

    Eight cars, Two motorcycles, one pedal assist bicycle and one Li powered Polaris Ranger EV. We talked to about 300 people and gave about 35 rides/drives including two motorcycle rides! Pretty good time. Thanks to the out of town drivers who participated. 2016 NDEW Wenatchee.JPG
