People interested in electric vehicles will have a new outlet for learning about environmentally-friendly transportation.

The Drive Electric Kitsap Fair is planned Saturday, Sept. 21 and will give local residents the chance to learn about electric vehicles of all kinds.

The fair will begin at 10 a.m. with presentations at Bainbridge Island Fire Station 21 on Madison Avenue.

At 11:15 a.m., the event will continue until mid-afternoon across the street at the parking lot of the First Baptist Church at 8810 Madison Ave. NE and Highway 305. Participants can view electric cars, bikes, scooters, motorcycles, and a Kitsap Transit electric bus.

Attendees can also take short test-drives in some electric cars.

The free community fair is open to all Kitsap County and Olympic Peninsula residents. Ranger & the Re-Arrangers will provide music from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., and snacks and lunch may be available for purchase from visiting food trucks.

The discussion at Fire Station 21 features a panel of electric car and bicycle dealers as well as owners to answer questions from the audience.

The fair is the first National Drive Electric Week event west of Seattle. It is organized by the Climate and Energy Forum on Bainbridge, which conducts monthly events.

Sponsors include the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Climate Action Bainbridge, EcoAdapt, Friends of Island Power, and Sustainable Bainbridge.
