Strassenfest Committee announces 2019 theme

This year’s theme for the Jasper Strassenfest will center around the city’s designation as the Indiana Chamber Community of the Year.

This theme was chosen to accentuate the fact that in November of 2018, the city of Jasper was recognized by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, as the Indiana Community of the Year.


The Strassenfest Committee has also chosen Brenda Stallings as the “Hofmarschall” or “Grand Marshall” for the 41st Annual Jasper Strassenfest. To coincide with the state-wide honor of “Community of the Year,” the committee felt it was a fitting choice to name the person who nominated the city for this prestigious award and owner of Jasper-based Matrix Integration as the 2019 Strassenfest Hofmarschall.

As Strassenfest Hofmarschall, Brenda will speak at opening ceremonies on Thursday, August 1st. She will also attend several Strassenfest events and activities as well as serve as Hofmarschall or Grand Marshall, to lead the Strassenfest parade on Sunday, August 4th.

The official 2019 Strassenfest Logo and Button is still in the design phase at this time but should be completed and released in the next few weeks.

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.
