We are a community-based nonprofit providing family events showcasing our community and contributing to the quality of life that makes Perrysburg the “Best Suburban Downtown” four years in a row.

Downtown Perrysburg Events

Downtown Perrysburg, Inc. (DPI) has become an essential piece of the community’s fabric and spearheads numerous community events that draw thousands of visitors to the downtown area who eat, shop and take in the historic beauty of our city.
