About the DDVB

Welcome to Defiance!

The Defiance Development and Visitors Bureau (DDVB) was established in 2006 as a Main Street Organization and Visitors Bureau with the mission to revitalize downtown Defiance and promote areas throughout Defiance County all under one roof.
We are happy to have the opportunity to impact positive change for our community through community awareness promotions, beautification projects, events and activities and so much more.

Defiance…where friends, families and the rivers meet!
