I organized a Sunday Drive event for the EV community for Sunday September 11 to a very cool location just outside of Okotoks, the Chinook Arch Meadery.
Chinook Arch Meadery offers up amazing selections of honey products, select smoked meats, ice cream and award winning mead. The owners and staff are awesome people, very friendly, helpful and informative. They offer up tours of both the bees and honey production as well as the meadery, making this a venue for all ages.
The venue was a hit for everyone! Adults and kids alike enjoyed the indoor bee hive, the ice cream and the outdoor hay bale maze. The adults liked the mead samples, smoked meats and honey products. For many of the electric vehicles owners who attended, mead was a new experience and it seemed that everyone enjoyed it.
We had several people interested in electric vehicles come out to get information and check out the event with a couple even coming from as far away as Lethbridge to be involved.
Overall, this was a fantastic day, a great venue, awesome people and a trip worth doing over and over again! It was great hanging out with other EV owners and going someplace cool. Huge thank you to all who came out!

Come join in the fun on future Sunday Drives! Check out the events calendar for what we have planned next!
National Drive Electric Week is upon us again and we are getting ready to take it on in style!
To start it all off, we have the Calgary Drive Electric Expo coming up on Saturday.
This event is bound to be a lot of fun and a great opportunity to interact with the general public to answer questions on EVs and show what is available. Well worth coming out if you have an EV and even more worth while if you are looking to take the EV plunge! Learn about EVs from the people who know – the owners!
IKEA is hosting the event again and celebrating EVs with us! A huge shout out and thank you to IKEA for their involvement.
We follow this event up with a Sunday Drive where we will again have EVs on hand in an out-of-the-city location at a very cool spot. This event proves that EVs are not limited to urban environments and breaks the fears of range anxiety. What better place to do that than at a meadery? Come join in the fun and check out what Chinook Arch Meadery and the Chinook Arch Honey Company have to offer!
This makes for a busy start of National Drive Electric Week, but we are not done!
We next follow this up with the September EVAA Coffee Meet! Come join us for a coffee and chat on all things EV! Wednesday is the date and Tim Hortons is the place for EV owners and people interested to come and have a beverage and talk about the EV world.
Central Alberta, don’t feel left out. We have action for you as well!
Edmonton Drive Electric Expo is up for the following Saturday and is again going to be an awesome time! Lots of vehicles, lots of knowledgeable folks and lots of fun for all!
Southgate Centre is hosting the event for Edmonton this year and celebrating National Drive Electric Week with us! Huge shout out and thank you to Southgate Centre for their involvement!
Now, all we need is you! Come join in on one or all of the events you can and be a part of our community and National Drive Electric Week!
See you there!
