The streets of Downtown Defiance are filled with activities as we celebrate the official flower of Defiance with the community’s largest Art and Craft Fair. Join both young and old for a day of entertainment that features free lilacs to 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 2023 Lilac Festival sponsor, the State Bank and Trust Company!
