Welcome to the Stroede Center for the Arts. The Stroede Center is administered by the Defiance Community Cultural Council (DCCC), a non-profit volunteer organization, dedicated to the promotion of the performing arts, communication, and historic preservation in Defiance.
The Stroede Center is home to Defiance Community Television (DCTV), a public access station and DCCC partner in advocacy for the arts.
In addition to a classical chamber series, Sunday at the Center, the Stroede Center hosts Young People's Theatre Guild (YPTG), lectures organized by the city historian's office, studio recitals, and many other events. These events and other local cultural happenings can be found on the Defiance Community Events Calendar.
