About the DDVB

Welcome to Defiance!

For 10 years the Defiance Development and Visitor’s Bureau has served the community. As an organization, we are committed to revitalizing the downtown and promoting areas throughout the county. We have actively participated in developing and working towards the goals in our local Strategic Plan document. Through our work of promoting and enhancing the quality of life in Defiance, we have an opportunity to impact positive change for our community. This has enabled us to help provide an atmosphere of small town charm as well as big city appeal. Due to these efforts we were awarded the designation of one of Ohio’s Best Hometowns for 2014. Please feel free to contact any of our staff at 419-782-0739. We will be happy to provide any information or assistance that you need.
