One of Jasper’s biggest events will honor Vincennes University this year.

Jasper Strassenfest has announced the theme for their 2020 event as “Celebrating Jasper’s Commitment to Higher Education, VU Jasper’s 50th Anniversary.”

The event will serve as a way to honor VU as a staple for higher education in the Jasper community for the past 50 years. As part of the celebration, the Strassenfest committee has selected VU Jasper Alumnus and President of the VU Jasper Foundation Board of Directors Dan Fritch to serve as 2020 Strassenfest Hofmarschall.
