Event ReportNearly 900 attendees joined us for the 8th Annual Longmont Earth Day Celebration and EV Expo. We estimate that about half of the attendees engaged with the EV Expo area, with over 4 dozen taking a ride in the Lightning eMotors electrified transit van. Our EV display space was limited, but featured some interesting and rare EV's alongside the usual Teslas, Leafs, and Bolts. This included the Musting MachE, Audi Etron CUV, and VW ID 4.

The VW ID.4, Audi eTron, Tesla Model 3, Mustang MachE, and Fiat 500e were a small part of the Longmont Earth Day Celebration EV Expo that engaged with nearly 400 attendees. While most of the popular EVs were represented, most attendees really wanted to know where the trucks are.
Drive Electric Earth Day at the 8th Annual Longmont Earth Day Celebration will feature electric cars, electric commercial vehicles, and EV owners ready to share their ownership experience. Lightning eMotors will be shuttling river clean up participants to and from the site in their EV converted Ford Transit van.
The Longmont Drive Electric Earth Day exhibit will be part of one big party that celebrates the Earth, inspires curiosity, and offers fun, interactive opportunities to learn how we can work against the global challenge of climate change on a local level. Programming includes a concert with Boulder County legends Jeff & Paige, inspiring live animal encounters with baby goats, eagles, owls, and hawks, collaborative art projects, and a river cleanup with Can'd Aid.
There are currently 48 attendees registered.
