Description

You are invited to join us on beautiful Salt Spring Island for a fun and entertaining family weekend of envisioning and experiencing our renewable electric and energy efficient future.

The weekend begins on Friday afternoon with BC Ferries arriving from all 3 directions loaded with EV automobiles and bikes of all sorts. On Friday evening there will be a panel session entitled "The Innovators", with John Stonier, sustainable economy entrepreneur and inventor of the Veemo® as one of the panelists. He will be joined by Julian Sale, owner of the first electric-only automotive dealer in Canada (Motorize EV), and Kent Rathwell, who, in addition to initiating numerous other sustainable and innovative business practices, created a nationwide electric vehicle charging network across Canada.

Throughout the weekend, the 10 acre heritage location will highlight sustainable living options with an emphasis on electric vehicles. We have onsite tent camping available (Friday and Saturday), education sessions, live music, food trucks - including Al's Gourmet Falafel and Fix Tacos, flying drones, biodigesters, high school robotics, an EV photography and vintage EV poster show, exhibits and fun for both adults and kids.

Several vendors will have a wide variety of new and used electric cars onsite available for test driving - likely more than you'll typically find gathered together in any one location. This will be a fantastic opportunity to compare and contrast the available models and get behind the wheel - a life changing experience! We'll also have a variety of electric bikes available for test driving as well.

Hope to see you there!

Tickets for the weekend are available via Eventbrite.
Volunteer opportunities may be available, details posted soon.
