Amerivespa 2017

Amerivespa 2017 is coming to Seattle July 6-9!

Vespa Club of America (VCOA)​ is pleased to announce that the site of Amerivespa 2017 scooter rally will be in Seattle, WA on July 6th – 9th, 2017.  Jointly hosted by the Vespa Club of Seattle (VCOS), Amerivespa Seattle will be four days of scootering fun for scooter enthusiasts and the general public. Whether you call us: Jet City, Tech City, or Coffee City ­ there is no denying that Seattle is one  one of the nation’s premier tourist destinations.  The moderate weather allows for riding year round, and a unique geographic location makes for a recipe that equals an ideal location to celebrate and promote motor scootering in the USA.

Amerivespa is the largest annual motor scooter rally in the United States and typically brings over 600­800 scooter enthusiasts from all over the USA, Europe, Canada, Asia, Mexico, and Australia. With its additional draw as a central tourist destination, Seattle could conceivably bring over 1,000 attendees. VCOA is a non­profit organization whose members are dedicated to riding motor scooters, and is a society for people who share the passion of vintage and modern scooters.  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 scooter as an energy­ efficient vehicle and economical mode of transportation that conserves fuel, reduces traffic congestion, and treads lightly on the overworked road system.  While its origins are rooted on the iconic Vespa scooter, the VCOA welcomes all scooter enthusiasts regardless of what they ride.
