Lilac Festival & Street Fair

Update 04/17/2024: Vendor booths are sold out for 2024.

Attention Vendors: **Last year we had an issue with an individual reaching out to potential Lilac Festival vendors claiming to be from the DDVB office and requesting a vendor fee. Please be aware that you will only be contacted by a member of our staff (Kirstie Mack, Lori Hagerman, or McKenzi Beck). If anything seems suspicious, please call the DDVB office at 419-782-0739. Do not mail any payments other than to our direct address which is: Defiance Development and Visitors Bureau, 325 Clinton St., Defiance, OH 43512.**

10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, May 11, 2024

The streets of Downtown Defiance are filled with activities as we celebrate the official flower of Defiance with the community’s largest arts and crafts fair. Join both young and old for a day of entertainment that features free lilacs for the first 750 attendees, arts and craft vendors, unique food vendors, and children’s activities. The event is free and located on Clinton Street.

Thank you to our 2024 event sponsor, The State Bank and Trust Company!
