The successes it generated led to a name change and a new website, and the first official `EV Fest' was set for October 2010. EV Fest 2011 took a new direction and moved to the Evergreen Brick Works. Boasting 36 Exhibitors onsite, it was d ouble the previous year's event. EV Fest 2012 grew once again and attendance nearl y tripled. 2013 saw EV Fest scaled back to accommodate a move to a smaller facil ity that supported charging up to eight Electric Vehicles at one time plus a 20 kW Solar Carport. But now the time has come to grow even further. 2014 boasts space for up to 80 i ndoor exhibitors plus 10 EV charging stations. It also allows excellent support for corporately-sponsored Electric Vehicle test drives, without interfering with the core show activities.
