JASPER, Ind. (WEHT)- While the 2020 Jasper Strassenfest has been cancelled, organizers are still encouraging the public to donate directly to the organizations that run food or game booths at the Strassenfest.

Additionally, organizers are asking people to decorate Jasper and the surrounding areas in “Strassenfest colors” between July 27 and August 2 to celebrate German heritage.

Strassenfest flags, bunting, mugs, and buttons are available for purchase at the Jasper Chamber of Commerce, Monday through Friday during “regular business hours.” Program books, however, will not be available. Mugs are available for $30 while buttons cost $1.

Organizers say funds raised by memorabilia sales go directly to funding the next Strassenfest celebration. Planning for Strassenfest 2021 is already underway and is scheduled to run August 5 through August 8. Information on the Strassenfest can be found on event’s Facebook page and website.

JHS German Exchange 
We are the only booth with souvenirs, shirts, patches, pins, stickers and general information about the Straßenfest. The proceeds from our booth support the JHS German Exchange Program. This exchange has been ongoing for 35 years and occurs every two years between Jasper and Pfaffenweiler, Germany. Our exchange students man the booth and also participate in the Strassenfest Heritage events and the StrassenVORfest. The showcase at Jasper High School also highlights the 35-year tradition of the German Exchange with Pfaffenweiler/Staufen, Germany. Sister Cities of Jasper
