Our second DEED event was very well attended. The Party for the Planet was RIchmond’s primary celebration of Earth Day, drawing thousands of people and more than 120 attendees to our EV display. We had a 2018 Nissan LEAF, Chevy Bolt, Tesla Model 3 and Zero Motorcycle on display, sharing space with the Virginia Sierra Club and Virginia Clean Cities.

Taking place near the James River at Historic Tredegar, Party for the Planet is a free, family-oriented festival dedicated to environmentally-friendly living and sustainability. Highlights include the Earth Day 5K Race Without a Trace; live music and entertainment; craft beer, wine, and local food trucks; kid-friendly activities; local community organizations, non-profits, artists and vendors; and educational demos and activities to ignite interest in sustainability, health, and the environment.
Drive Electric RVA, Virginia Clean Cities, and the Sierra Club Virginia Chapter will join forces to display three of the latest all-electric vehicles on the market -- the Chevy Bolt, the 2018 Nissan LEAF, and the Tesla Model 3. In addition, we will offer information on all three organizations as well as an interactive trivia contest with prizes.
