WOW! 2015 was a great show! We are already looking forward to the 2016 parade and show!

CarShow1Once again, the Poolesville.Green will host us on Poolesville Day with the help of the great Town of Poolesville. 2016 will be bigger and better. We are working to include a lot of great give-a-ways for car registrants and visiting guests, more activities, speakers and fun. All car owners will also get a free T-shirt and goodies bag.

We will be having a number of great car events leading up to the NDEW day. Keep up to date with the latest information. Whether as an attending guest, wanting to volunteer (we really need volunteers) or an Electric (EV) or Plugin Electric (PHEV) vehicle owner or dealer, register early, stay up to date and have a say in what we do and how we do it (your input is important to us).

This year’s event is shaping up to be a spectacular event. We are on par with becoming one of the largest National Drive Electric Week car show events on the whole east coast. We are expecting 50 to 70 electric vehicles and more than 10,000 visitors. We have a lot of great give-a-ways, including a $560 GE Level 2 oplhgzywall mount charger donated by MD Volt. We have a number of dealerships and manufacture reps, like Jean Gough, EV Fleet Business Development Manager from Nissan North America, Inc. and Jim Alvis, Manager at Government Affairs for Kia Motors America Corporation, Washington Office (who is bringing a new Kia Soul EV).
Dealerships will also be there like; DARCARS Nissan Rockville, King Volkswagen of Rockville, and we are reaching out to others like; Sheehy Ford Lincoln of Gaithersburg, Rockville Porsche & Audi, and BMW of Rockville.
And plan to be visited by the Empire!
Members of the Star Wars 501st Legion’s “Old Line Garrison” are planning to attend  Poolesville Day and will be camping out with us at the car show.  This should make for some great photo ops.
