This time of year, we’re spoiled with excuses to get out and celebrate, between music festivals and food festivals and block parties and beyond. I’m always a fan of a good reason to indulge in some quality eating, quality listening and quality people-watching, so this weekend, I have my eye on the Capitol District Street Fair in Morgan Park.

The fair’s set to kick off Saturday (May 16) at 9 a.m., and its intent is some multi-neighborhood togetherness — it “brings together the Germantown, Salemtown, Hope Gardens and Buena Vista neighborhoods for a day of music, food and celebration.” 

If you’ve had your eye on any of these areas for your new home, dropping by could be a great way to get a sense of the vibe and the lay of the land. (Plus it offers some solid entertainment, including a bunch of bands — Fly Golden Eagle, The Lonely Biscuits and others — and a dedicated kids’ area, along with food from Germantown’s 312 Pizza Company and growing barbeque mini-chain Edley’s and others.)

This all felt to me like a good excuse to focus this week’s Open Houses roundup on that increasingly popular area. 

It’s no secret that Germantown has been on the rise for a good while now, and as it’s grown, its neighboring communities of Salemtown, Hope Gardens and Buena Vista have come with it. Folks have been flocking to this part of Nashville from all over Middle Tennessee in part for the cultural bloom (I talked a little about how the Germantown food scene is blowing up last summer, and it’s only gotten hotter since). But big draws, too, are the proximity to downtown, the big-city walkability, tight-knit neighborhood feel and mix of charming historic homes and stylish new construction.

Hitting the Capitol District Street Fair on Saturday, then exploring some Open Houses in the area on Sunday, would make for a great home-hunting weekend, I think. 

First, let’s take a look at the span of Open Houses in the area this weekend:


Then, a few Open Houses in Germantown and Hope Gardens on Sunday that might catch your eye:
