Kilbirnie Festival 2017 - electric vehicle display and rides

Electric vehicles will be at the Kibirnie Festival! There's three things going on...


1. Display. A selection of electric vehicles will be parked up all day, with chatty owners next to them to explain to the public how wonderful the cars are. Please RSVP if you can display a car and chat, pls explain what you have so we can have a variety. You'll need to park up 9.55am and leave around 4pm. Drive to the intersection of Evans Bay Parade and Kemp St and you'll be directed to where to park, which will very close by, and inside the end of a coned off pedestrian area.

2. Rides/Drives. A selection of further vehicles will be available for riding in, and potentially driving based on the discretion of the car's owner. Please RSVP if you can offer you car for rides or drives. If coming, driving to the same intersection as #1 above but park up outside the coned off area. Great if you can be there all day (10am-4pm) but having you there for a short while is still lovely. We will figure out on the day which roads remain free flowing as a quick driving route, e.g. Kemp St out towards Shelly Bay road.

3. Parking. If you are attending the fair you and own an EV you are welcome to park your car up beside where the EV rides are occurring. This will expand the size of the display, and give you priority parking. :) Don't forget to say hi to the other EV owners and enjoy your time at the festival!

Thank you to organiser Martin Wilson for inviting the Better NZ Trust and EV owners to the festival so that we can all be #LeadingTheCharge !
