Jasper Strassenfest - Right Around the Corner!
“CELEBRATING TRADITION! BUILDING OUR FUTURE” is the theme chosen for the 39th Annual Jasper Strassenfest. The committee welcomes our guests to participate in the many events and enjoy the awesome entertainment that has made Jasper Strassenfest the fun-filled celebration that is anticipated each year.
As Jasper embarks upon a number of building projects in our downtown and river area, including the Cultural Center (a combined facility for the Arts and a new public library) at the former site of Hoosier Desk, to the River Centre repurposing of the Jasper Cabinet building, a new look is evolving. From the restoration of the former Astra Theatre on the square to the transformation of the Jasper Country Club into the Parklands, there is much activity. Please excuse our mess and exercise due caution if encountering these projects while enjoying the Strassenfest.
