Crespo is a city in the Argentine province of Entre Ríos, some 40 km from the provincial capital Paraná. It has around 18,000 inhabitants (as per the 2001 census [INDEC]), most of whom are descendants of Volga Germans who migrated from Russia to Argentina from 1875 onwards. The town's German heritage is reflected in the annual beer festival, based on the Oktoberfest but held in January. The economy is centered in avicultural and other agricultural products.

Successful A.S. Roma (formerly of Manchester United, Olympique de Marseille and Real Madrid) footballer Gabriel Heinze was born in Crespo.
