National Drive Electric Week's Austin Party will be held September 20, 2014. Details to come!

National Drive Electric Week’s Austin Party will be held September 20, 2014. Details to come!

We’re finalizing the details! It’s going to be a party with a photograph! Bring your park-safe picnic for some socializing and entertainment, then take part in an aerial-view heart showing how much you love your EV!

We have hopes that a special invitation can get their vehicle out of California in time, and another can show us some old-school EV luxury.  And you!  You’ll be there too, right?

Confirm your attendance on the National Drive Electric Week Website.

If you have your own celebration planned for the week, let us know and we’ll add it to our event page!

[update 8/8: We asked Kathy and the Kilowatts to play for all you lovers of Austin Blues (and because of the name. We won’t lie). They said yes!]

[update 8/8 v2: We also have an online donations form to help offset the cost of the event and promote the Austin Area EAA chapter of the Electric Auto Association. We were informed that donors of amounts in excess of $1000 can request the ID of the EAA for tax purposes, otherwise a print out of the page should be adequate.]
