Help Park at the Haus

Volunteers Needed

As you know, we are going to use the future home of Deutsches Haus at 1700 Moss Street (near the corner of Esplanade Ave. and Moss St.) to raise money for the new Haus.

However, we still have several things to do at the Moss St. property before we are ready to park cars for Jazzfest.

Here are some of the items on our “To-Do” list:

Put up orange fencing

Cut numerous conduits and protrusions on the slabs

Put up the banner and other signs

Mark and stake out hazards

Trim some tree branches

Designate ‘no parking’ areas on the slabs

Pick up rocks and debris

Mark some initial parking spaces

Treat residual ant piles

Clear an interior sidewalk

Install a 2×4 step down from the 3rd District slab

Secure the fence perimeter and prop the cemetery fence with 2x4s

Weather permitting; I will be working on site Thursday (9am-4pm), and Friday (9am-4pm). Check the volunteer tab on our website for more details.

Also, weather permitting; our final setup will be on Wednesday. April 24th. Again, I will post this under the volunteer tab on our website.

Parking cars at our Moss Street location is a revenue-producing venture for the new Haus; HOWEVER, at the moment, it looks like we will not be able to open the gates everyday due to the lack of volunteers.


The following is the number of volunteers we need for each shift:

Friday, April 26th, 1st shift – 6 needed
Friday, April 26th, 2nd shift – 12 needed
Saturday, April 27th, 1st shift – 6 needed
Saturday, April 27th, 2nd shift – 5 needed
Sunday, April 28th, 1st shift – 9 needed
Sunday, April 28th, 2nd shift – 4 needed
Thursday, May 2nd, 1st shift – 1 needed
Thursday, May 2nd, 2nd shift – 9 needed
