The Vespa Club of America is concerned for the safety of our members and our event attendees. This being said we are monitoring the situation regarding the coronavirus and are going to be working with local authorities and the Vespa World Club to ensure the safety of everyone. We are hopeful that we will be able to hold our events (Amerivespa, National Vespa Parade Day, Vintage Vespa Days) as planned. If for some reason the Coronavirus threat escalates we will reevaluate the events scheduled and let everyone know. In the mean time please take all necessary precautions to keep yourself from becoming ill. Please follow the guidelines given by medical professionals. Stay safe, ride safe, wash your hands and cough and sneeze into your VCOA neck scarf and wash it regularly.
JULY 30TH- AUGUST 2ND
Vespa Club of America (VCOA) is pleased to announce that the site of our first Vintage Vespa Days rally will be in Los Gatos CA July 30th-August 2nd 2020. Jointly hosted by the Vespa Club of Los Gatos, Vintage Vespa Days will be four days of Vespa Appreciation fun for Vintage Vespa enthusiasts. Los Gatos is the gateway to the Santa Cruz Mt. Some of the best riding in the world. Los Gatos is an upscale town with small town feel. Historic down town area has lots of shopping and resturants while you're not out riding.
Who can attend Vintage Vespa Days? Anyone can come to the event however we ask that you only bring Vespas that are 25 years old or older. We will also accept any APE's. Ape's will have their own rides.
Vintage Vespa Days was created to really focus on the older machines and the people who collect and restore them. This is our first attempt at this event. The Vespa Club Los Gatos will be working with other bay area clubs to create an event that we hope will keep you wanting more.VCOA is a nonprofit 501c (7) organization whose members are dedicated to riding Vespsa, and is a society for people who share the passion of vintage and modern Vespas. Approximately 70% of the scooters originally sold in the United States were Vespas. However, many members also own Lambretta, Cushman, Heinkel, Zundapp, and other makes. VCOA supports the use of the Vespa as an energy efficient vehicle and economical mode of transportation that conserves fuel, reduces traffic congestion, and treads lightly on the overworked road system even if they are two stroke.
