Event Report

Thank you all for braving the weather for a wonderful Earth Day Ride and Drive! We had a large crowd and Forth Mobility, The Environmental Center, Smolich Nissan, and the Bend EV club members were busy answering questions about electric vehicles for nearly the entire event.
See you all in September for Drive Electric Week!

Event Description


The 2019 Earth Day: Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive takes place on Kansas Avenue in front of The Environmental Center (downtown Bend) from 12pm – 3pm.

Our Electric Vehicle Ride & Drive will be in the parking lot next to Troy Field, where you can take an electric vehicle for a spin and talk to local EV owners.

Are you an electric vehicle owner who would like to bring your car to show and answer questions about EV ownership? We'd love to have you. We especially need BMW, Kia, and Tesla owners. Please contact [email protected] to see what vehicles are still needed and how you can help.

There will be live music from Maxwell Friedman Group and a street fair featuring local businesses, nonprofits and food carts. Head over to Troy Field for the Kid’s Zone to enjoy interactive activities and games for all ages.
