It’s happening! The electrification of vehicles is gaining momentum – something we can see first-hand out on the roads, in parking lots and maybe even in your own driveway. If you are considering or curious about how to make the switch to an electric vehicle (EV), then please drop by this coming weekend for Sustainable Orillia’s 5th annual ‘all-Electric Event’. This year, the event is featuring more vehicles, more electrical options and more access to expertise than ever. You’ll get your questions answered from experts and owners, with the opportunity to try out some of the options available to you

The Sustainable Orillia ‘all-Electric Vehicle Event’ is a two-day, low-pressure opportunity to explore the current and fast-growing world of electric vehicles. Free to the public, this year’s ‘all-Electric Vehicle Event’ has expanded in scope to feature many newly electric powered options, such as lawn mowers, heat pumps, e-bikes, scooters and boats.

You’ll find the exhibits and more in the Roller Rink Building at ODAS Park (4461 Fairgrounds Road, Orillia) – starting at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 5th until 5:00 p.m. and again on Sunday, August 6th from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

In addition to the twenty exhibitors and subject experts who’ll be on-hand both days, Plug‘n Drive will be back with several EV’s available for test drives.

There is a series of relevant one-hour presentations scheduled in the course of the two days.
