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.

The Corvallis Sustainability Coalition invites you--the owner of an all-electric or plug-in hybrid car—to Rally at the Fairgrounds and caravan through downtown Corvallis on Saturday, April 30. Then, if you choose, continue the rally with a fun scavenger hunt touring the local highways and streets of Albany, Corvallis, and Philomath. The scavenger hunt is based on your ability to correctly answer questions about things visible along the rally route and requires assistance from a passenger/navigator. A scavenger hunt $5 cash registration fee  includes a tailgate lunch of pizza at noon back at the Fairgrounds. 

Rally assembly and registration begins at 9 a.m. Departure at 10 a.m. sharp. Then at the Fairgrounds from Noon - 5 pm, the EV Show will have EV owners and dealers sharing with the public their knowledge and experience with electric vehicles of all types, including electric bikes and scooters. Ride-alongs will be an option. Information on solar panels and home charging will also be available.  This event aims to show the growing availability and selection of electric vehicles of all types.
