The Strassenfest Committee is also once again asking for the community’s help in choosing a “Hofmarschall” or “Grand Marshall” for the 2018 Jasper Strassenfest.
Anyone who may know of someone who has given generously of their time to promote the city of Jasper and Jasper’s German heritage, may nominate them to be considered for selection as the 2018 Strassenfest Hofmarschall.
To submit a nomination, send a letter listing your nominee’s name along with a brief statement of why you feel this person is deserving of this honor.
Previous nominations may be resubmitted as long as that person has not previously served as Strassenfest Hofmarschall.
Letters of nomination may be dropped off at the Jasper Chamber of Commerce office at 302 West 6th street in Jasper. You may also mail your letter of nomination to the Jasper Strassenfest Committee, attention Hofmarschall Nomination, P.O. Box 307, Jasper Indiana 47547- 0307.
Nominations must be received at the Chamber office no later than March 1st. The 2018 Jasper Strassenfest Hofmarschall will be chosen at the committee’s March meeting and announced shortly thereafter.
The Strassenfest Committee would also like to announce that sponsorship request letters will be mailed soon.
The committee encourages past sponsors of the Jasper Strassenfest to watch their mail for these letters and respond as quickly as possible. All cash and in-kind sponsors are listed in the events and activities program booklet each year.
The committee would like to get these booklets printed and distributed well in advance of the
Strassenfest to encourage as many people as possible to attend the Strassenfest.
If you do not receive a sponsorship request letter and would like to find out how you can become a sponsor of the Jasper Strassenfest, contact the Jasper Chamber of Commerce at 812-482-6866.
Make plans now to attend the 2018, 40th annual, Jasper Strassenfest, August 2nd to 5th in downtown Jasper.
