Dear Visitor,

 Welcome Home - That's how the people of Van Wert treat our guests.  We want you to feel like a part of our family.  Please let us know how we can help you!

Whether you're here to attend one of our many festivals, events, or celebrations and staying with us for a day or two, or perhaps we're just a stop for lunch on your way to someplace else, we want you to feel right at home.

We are proud to be a community that treasures small town Midwest values.  Families are important, patriotism runs deep,and the American work ethic is very evident.

I invite you to see what we have to offer - beautiful city parks; excellent educational opportunities; a state-of-the-art cultural center; superb health care facilities; unique shops and boutiques; dining from homemade cooking just like Mom's to a first-rate bistro, year- round fun and festivals;and so much more.

Be sure to check out the Fesrtivals and Events page for more details and many more exciting events taking place.

Van Wert is a special place, whether to visit or live.  I hope you will take a few minutes to browse through our website.  If I can be of further help, you can email me at or call our office at 419.238.9378 or toll free at 877.989.2282.
