EVENT: Jasper Strassenfest
Savor the Strassenfest
Celebrating its German heritage, the Jasper Strassenfest in Jasper is an annual event that combines tradition, history and entertainment. This year’s festival honors Jasper-based Vincennes University’s 50th anniversary. Festivalgoers are encouraged to dress in their finest German attire (hello, lederhosen and dirndls!), enjoy the delicious food and partake in the many events throughout the Strassenfest. Activities range from the Dad’s Root Bier Mug Holding Contest to the Schuhplattler and Landler dances to the Chocolate Bliss Schokospiel, to name a few. With booths run by non-profit organizations, guests can be sure that their money is benefitting the community.
