CroVespa invites you to Šibenik this weekend for Vespa’s 70th birthday and Šibenik’s 950th. CroVespa will be held from September 9-11.

Over 250 drivers from 35 Vespa clubs across 10 countries will gather in Šibenik for the 9th Annual CroVespa Festival. The Vespa Club of Šibenik has prepared a rich program for all participants and citizens to enjoy.


The Vespa Club of Šibenik currently has 19 active members, and the celebration of special birthdays this year has further enriched the post-season tourist offer in the city of Šibenik.


Vespa drivers will rev their engines throughout the city of Šibenik, riding in a line together, exploring not only the old town but also Zlarin island. Participants will get to see many tourist attractions, take swims, visit museums, and even have a gala dinner in the famous Barone fortress.


A row of 250 Vespas will not only be a sight to see, but former Vespa drivers Dino Karađole (Director of the Šibenik Tourist Board) and Mayor Željko Burić will even join the parade.

The entertainment program will include live music, food, and plenty of engines.
