6th Annual Defiance Christmas Festival - Saturday December 5th

Festival & Pet Parade in Historic Missouri Wine Country


Don't miss a small-town Christmas Tradition! Kick-off at noon, Wine Country Gardens, Hwy. 94 in Defiance, MO - parade route goes right on Defiance Road to St. Paul's U.C.C.

There's something about the smell of pine in the air, the jingling of sleigh bells, and watching a parade come down the street in small-town America.  The 6th Annual Defiance Christmas Festival will have something for everyone!  We're happy to announce our Grand Marshall -- Monica Adams of KTVI Channel 2 and (of course) Santa Claus!

Want details on how to get in on the fun?  Look at details below...
