Established in 2013, the Defiance Jazz Festival: Take Me to the Rivers, honors the memory of jazz greats, Wild Bill Davison and Milt Buckner, who called Defiance their home. The event recognizes their contributions to the genre and has provided educational opportunities about the history of jazz.
Take Me To the Rivers is a Defiance Community Cultural Council (DCCC) event, that offers an afternoon and evening of jazz music at the confluence of the Maumee and Auglaize Rivers. Besides a lovely setting, the variety of food and drinks, and a children’s program, make it a wonderful family activity.
