The Shirt Factory Hosts ‘Winter Meltdown’ After The Storm

During a week that featured a late winter snowstorm, The Shirt Factory held the “Winter Meltdown Spicy Food Festival”. This blustery Saturday afternoon was speckled with sunlight, and temperatures were comfortable for those with a heavy sweatshirt or a light jacket. From 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM, food trucks and picnic tables were set up outside of the Shirt Factory in the Cooper Street parking lot to showcase a wide range of flavors. This was a hybrid event, with some vendors and shops inside the building and others set up in the Cooper Street parking lot.

People sat outside enjoying the fare… Some huddled close to the heat lamps, while others spread out using the ample number of picnic tables that were available. Families meandered through the crowds, and events goers came and went throughout the afternoon. Some were attracted by the wide array of food, and some were interested in the Shirt Factory. Jeff Rocas and his son Zack traveled from Gloversville to attend: “As a tourist, it was nice to see a good turnout for the event. The variety of food vendors was great. It offered something for everyone,” he said as he finished a spicy empanada in the picnic area. “The Shirt Factory was impressive with all of the different artists and shops. Definitely a place worth exploring,” Rocas said. He had seen the event advertised on Facebook weeks ago, and thought it would be a nice event that both he and his son could enjoy. 

Coming up in April, the Shirt Factory is hosting “Spring is Sweet: Maple in April”. This event is on Saturday, April 15th, 2023, from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
