German-American Day

In 1987, President Ronald Reagan designated October 6th as "German-American Day" in celebration of the contributions made by German immigrants to the life and culture of the United States.

Since 1999, the Jasper Deutscher Verein, Sister Cities of Jasper, Inc., and the Jasper Partnership Commission have celebrated German-American Day in Jasper with a dinner and program in October. The German Heritage Award is presented to an individual or group who has generously contributed time, talents, or resources to maintaining, improving or building upon our German heritage in Dubois County. This recognition is open to anyone who gives what they can in order to make a difference.
