The Twilight Market will be held three times over the course of the summer on July 13, August 10 and September 14. All vendors are producer-only and from New York State; many are located within a 50-mile radius of Gloversville. Community groups will be present throughout the season as well.
“We are excited to once again bring this great family-friendly event to downtown Gloversville,” said Jennifer Jennings, Gloversville Downtown Development Specialist. “This month’s event will focus on the productive, creative spirit of our city and highlight the talents of our community.”
The event’s layout spans along North Main Street between Church and Fremont Streets. To ensure the safety of both market-goers and drivers, North Main Street will be closed at Fulton Street starting at 2:30 p.m. on market days. Family-friendly activities and live music will round out the evening’s festivities. “Our goal is to get the community out and about, walking up and down North Main Street, visiting with friends, family and neighbors,” Jennings noted.
Event sponsors include Key Partner Nathan Littauer Hospital, media sponsor The Leader Herald, major sponsor Fulton County Center for Regional Growth, community supporters Kinderhook Bank and North Country Ecological Services and friends of the market Fage USA, Ricmar Printing & Design and To the Moon and Back.
