One Day Until Our 2017 National Drive Electric Week Poolesville Day Event

Only one more day until our 2017 National Drive Electric Week (NDEW) Poolesville Day Event and it looks like we are in line for another record breaking event! We hope you are coming! Largest NDEW event on the east coast, 3rd largest worldwide (out of 286 events).

Note to Media and Vendors: Please contact for at the event parking.


We have over 120 Electric and Plugin Electric Hybrid Vehicles (EV/PHEV) signed up to come out and enjoy the day.  This is mostly EV owners volunteering their time to help educate the public about what it is like to really own an Electric or Plugin Electric Hybrid Vehicle.  There will also be manufacturers and dealerships from Tesla, Ford, Nissan, Chevy, VW, BMW and more.  Patrons will be able to test drive or ride many of these.

Learn what the real facts and what are the myths about EVs. See the different makes and models and what are the advantages and disadvantages of both.  Also, the Classic Car Show returns this year and will be co-located with the  National Drive Electric Week show.  Partnering with the Town of Poolesville, this event is on Poolesville Day. The town is closed to all but foot traffic. Vendors line the street, music fills your ears and the smell of wonderful food fills the air. There will be farm animals, old time tractors (and steam engines at the car show), climbing walls and all kinds of entertainment. Oh, and the day starts at 10 am with a great parade. These events bring in 10,000 to 15,000 people. Don’t forget to get your photo with a Star Wars Stormtooper from the 501st or other hero Cosplayer at the NDEW event.

See the Hello Kitty electric car at the Poolesville Green booth.

This event is hosted by non-profit Poolesville.Green and supported by local EV groups like MD Volt and EVADC as well as our financial sponsors.
