Weekend Events Around Germantown

With fall weather comes the arrival of local festivals. They come in all shapes and sizes. Some festivals focus on art or music, usually accompanied with good food. Many local communities within Louisville host festivals to celebrate their neighborhoods and the unique people that reside there.

The 2014 Shotgun Music Festival is this Saturday. Get ready to enjoy a weekend of great music in Germantown! In Lighting will perform at 2:00 p.m. Elvis will follow at 3:00 p.m. IAMIS will take the stage at 4:00 p.m.

Do you enjoy dancing as much as you do listening to good music? Square dancing will take place at 5:00 p.m. The featured headliner is King Kong, who will take the stage at 6:30 p.m. Hang around afterward, because a dance party will take to the streets at 8:00 p.m. ARTxFM will DJ into the evening.

Louisville is becoming known for its great food truck association. Several food trucks will be available, serving delicious foods for you to enjoy. Vendor booths will be set up to sell crafts and other miscellaneous items.

The Shotgun Music Festival is sponsored by the GermanParistown Neighborhood Association. 2014 marks the eighth year for this neighborhood festival.

Visiting local festivals is a great way to get a feel for the community. Germantown and Schnitzelburg are a great place to call home. With unique and historic charm, you’ll fall in love with both the shotgun style homes and the people! Germantown is experiencing a period of growth. Young adults and couples are settling in the area due to its proximity to the Highlands and Old Louisville. A growing nightlife helps too!
