Amerivespa 2022 and 30 years of Vespa Club of America

Created by Dietrich Limper at 15:01 on January 28, 2022

Amerivespa started in 1992 as a celebration of all things scooter in America. The first rally held in St Louis MO, was mostly Lambrettas and Heinkels and had about 30 attendees. 30 Years later Amerivespa is 500 Vespa Club of America members celebrating the Vespesti Life style for five days. Full of rides, friends, interesting venues, a banquet awards dinner, concourse show, seminars, and more rides. Amerivespa from June 22-26, 2022, is fun for the whole family and all Vespesti. Members travel from all over the country. Some ride, some trailer, some fly, just to take part in the celebrations. This year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary as a Vespa Club we will be having special events. With this years logo by SHAG we will have some cool collectibles that you can only get if you attend. The Amerivespa is presented by the Twin Cities Scooter Collective and the Vespa Club of America.

30 years Vespa Club of America

Josh Rogers, President: "The Vespa Club USA founded in 1992 was a reboot of a club from the 1950's. In the 60's most of the clubs in the USA disappeared until this club was formed. Keep in mind the US market didnt see new Vespas from 1980-2000 so it was the role of the clubs keeping the Vespesti life style alive. Today we offer our members much much more than four issues of American Scooterist magazine. We also have over 30 chapters of the club most of which have started in the last five years. So while there is a rich history we are looking toward the future to bring even more Vespesti together so we can all enjoy Vespa. We are looking forward to the next 30 Years and really embracing all those who ride Vespa, Vintage, Modern, Electric, Hoover! We are supporting Vespa in whatever forms it takes."
