About the Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival

The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival 'EVFest' is all about thinking of sustainable transport in fun and innovative ways that support the development of electric vehicle industries in the region.

​The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival is delivered each year by a range of supportive Hunter organisations and businesses.

The EV Prize event is held every year, and sees high school students build and race their electric bikes at Newcastle Kart Racing Club at Cameron Park, for the coveted EV Prize. ​​Check out the 2018 EVPrize Results.

This year we are again engaging with our primary school and high school students in the region and beyond, who are building solar-powered cars and racing them on a 20m straight or oval track, the  Mini EV Prize at the Newcastle Kart Racing Club at Cameron Park.
