The Jasper Strassenfest Committee is planning on moving forward towards a 2021 Strassenfest.
After having to cancel the 2020 Jasper Strassenfest due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the plan is to hold the 2021 Strassenfest in and around downtown Jasper from August 5th through the 8th.
This year’s theme has also been picked, which in light of the Thyen Clark Cultural Center Completion, the theme for 2021 is Jasper Strassenfest – A Cultural Experience.
The official button design features the wording of the theme along with a background facsimile of the front entrance of the Thyen – Clark Cultural Center.
To tie into the theme, Jim and Pat Thyen have been selected as the Strassenfest Hofmarshalls for 2021.
The committee is also moving forward with a half-pot ticket fundraiser for this year’s Strassenfest, with ticket sales beginning in late June or early July, with the final drawing to be held on August 11th. A percentage of the net proceeds from the half-pot will go towards the Dubois County Scholastic Excellence Award Scholarship fund to benefit Dubois County students attending VU Jasper, as well as future improvements to the Jasper Strassenfest.
