Yes, Hybridfest is about hybrid cars, but it is also a place for discussion of important issues such as climate change, air quality, and the need for sustainable transportation. Car dealers, environmental groups, vendors and others will be on hand to make Hybridfest a memorable experience.

- Free Hybridfest t-shirt
- Free Hybridfest goodie bag

As a registered attendee you can also purchase a Boxed Lunch ($6 per person), and join us for the Awards Dinner ($15 per person, 6pm-8pm) with Keynote Speaker: David Morris, Vice President of the Institute for Local Self Reliance
Our goal is to gather at least 100 hybrid cars on site
to show that hybrid cars are everywhere and come in all shapes, sizes and colors. You can help us reach that goal, while having fun!
Speakers will share their thoughts on topics ranging from "hypermiling" techniques to hacking into your hybrid. These sessions are more technical than the outdoor sessions and only available to Registered Attendees.
Expect to see a few of the Prius “Marathon Men” there, as well as John1701a, Mike Dabrowski, and other hybrid notables. (see the Hybridfest web site
for a detailed list of speakers.)
Additional Hybridfest activities that are open to the general public at no charge include interactive exhibits, test drives, talking to other owners, vendor booths and music.
View one-of-a-kind vehicles like:
- The UW’s diesel hybrid electric Chevy Equinox (MOOlander)
- A fully functional EV1
- And maybe even a plug-in hybrid or two!
People from around the country are coming to Hybridfest so consider organizing your own “hybrid caravan” to the event. So far, states represented include West Virginia, Washington, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Minnesota, Illinois, Connecticut, Wisconsin and Michigan.
