Argentina, 15-17 November 2019 – Outstanding organisation of the San Juan Vespa Club, supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture and, most of all, great enthusiasm in the name of Vespa. The big event held from 15 to 17 November 2019 in San Juan for the XIX Encuentro Nacional Internacional de Vespa Clubes was a great success with a rich programme including tourist and cultural activities: culinary specialities accompanied by wine tastings from the Sierras Azules estate, located in Zonda; a ride on the El Villicum track and a tour through the Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley), in the Ischigualasto natural park, a unique and fascinating environment in the San Juan province (Northwest Argentina, near the Chile border).

There were also visits to the Teatro del Bicentenario (Theatre of the Bicentenary), the Franklin Rawson Provincial Museum of Fine Arts and the Juan Victoria Auditorium; exhibit of new and vintage Vespas, and unforgettable evenings with night parades, dinners, awards and music.
Hundreds of Vespa riders came from all over Argentina to participate in the super rally, but they also arrived from numerous other countries: Mexico, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and Peru.

“San Juan is fully capable of organising all types of events. These events are undoubtedly very important for tourism in our province, since various sectors benefit from them”, Nahuel Fernández, Ministry of Tourism and Culture director of institutional relations, had told the Diario de Cuyo newspaper.
And so it was: there is a deluge of images to demonstrate the success of the San Juan Encuentro. Here are a few sent in by Salvador Mateo Ruiz of the Rosario Vespa Club, along with the video clips (we wish to thank him for the collaboration).
