Canada Vespa Days 2024

Last 21-23 June  Canada Vespa Days were celebrated in Kingston, Ontario! This event was the first National Vespa event in Canadian History – or at least that anyone in attendance knew about! And Scooter Center was a proud sponsor!

Tickets were limited to 120 members of any official National Vespa Club. The event was sold out months ago! And almost 90 Vespas were proudly parked for everyone to see!

On behalf of the Vespa Club Canada (VCC), Jeff Schneider, President, and Julie welcomed all participants, who were happy to register, pick up their goodie bags and to check out the merchandise for sale.

Although this year’s Vespa World Days could not be held there as planned, VC Canada proved that it could make it a truly international meeting. Participants arrived not only from coast to coast across Canada, coming from Comox and Vancouver, British Columbia to Halifax, Nova Scotia, riders also came from the United States, Germany, Austria, Italy/Peru, and even the Philippines.

Participants were able to sign up for various rides, including a quick scoot around the town of Kingston, a ferry ride to see Wolfe Island by scooter, a ride along the St. Lawrence River to Brockville where riders were met by a local historian who explained the importance of Canada’s first Railway Tunnel, as well as a scoot through the twists and turns of the countryside and a group lunch on one of the area’s lakes. There were also group boat cruises through the waters connecting the 1000 Islands and a ride to a local brewery housed in a farm owned and operated by the same family for 8 generations. A gala dinner, complete with raffle prizes and a silent auction, concluded the first Canada Vespa Days event!

Scooter Center was invited, but this time we could only make our presence felt through some raffle prizes and silent auction items, as well as adding some items to the participant goodie bags. Until the next event…!
