Event Description

 

All attendees and volunteers are required to follow local health guidelines. It is recommended that everyone wear face masks whenever they are within six feet of another person at all Drive Electric Earth Day 2022 events. Please see this information about how to improve how your mask protects you. For more information, see our in-person event safety requirements.

This will be the 2nd EV event held in the Route 66 town of Atlanta, Illinois. Join fellow EV enthusiasts for an EV event like no other, EVs on Route 66! Head into the Route 66 town of Atlanta, Illinois for the day and enjoy being on the famous road laid in 1926. The cruise-in will take place from 10am-2pm on Arch Street in between Race and Vine Street on April 16th. For the early arrivals, we will have Cars & Coffee followed by the traditional cruise-in. Fellow EV enthusiasts in the area are welcome to attend with or without their cars. Come and admire these electric vehicles. 

Situated midway on Illinois' Mother Road, Atlanta, IL is an iconic Route 66 stop for those traveling the road to Santa Monica. The EV cruise-in will provide travelers and locals the ability to display and view their electric vehicles. The event is free to attend and visitors are encouraged to stay and enjoy the cars and downtown.

In the event of rain, the event will be rescheduled to April 24 without Cars & Coffee.
