An urban cultural and spiritual oasis located at the mystical corner where 5th and 6th Avenues meet 101st St a block from the Hudson River in North Troy. Freedom Square is a place to gather, exchange ideas, reflect, celebrate and nourish both body and soul. This mystical corner is an outdoor space where the Sanctuary hosts festivals and community events, serving as our resident arts and culture space.
Our beautiful tiled stage, conceptualized by mural artist Isaiah Zagar, came to life through the hard work of community volunteers. Freedom Square was born from community efforts; from the garden, fenced by repurposed bicycle wheels, to the Freedom Square stage, made up of a mosaic of tiles crafted by dedicated Troy volunteers.
The square serves as a venue for a host of seasonal celebrations. These festivities are always free and open to the public, featuring different community organizations, various musicians, and food sourced from the Collard City Growers’ Garden, just a block away.
