The Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds[1] is a multi-purpose facility in Watertown, New York.


A baseball park on the grounds serves as home to the Watertown Bucks and Road City Explorers of the North Country Baseball League. The ballpark has a capacity of 2,500 people and opened in 1938. From 1983 until 1998 it was the home of the Watertown Pirates and later the Watertown Indians of the professional New York-Penn League. [2] In 1999, the New York Penn-League franchise was moved to Staten Island.[3]


The Watertown Red & Black play their home games at the fairgrounds.

Ice hockey[]

The Watertown Municipal Arena is located on the fairgrounds. In 2012, the 1000 Island Privateers (now the Watertown Wolves) of the Federal Hockey League moved from Alexandria Bay to Watertown; the Privateers/Wolves have played in the arena each winter since.

Other events[]

As its name implies, the area is home to the Jefferson County Fair in late July of each year.[4]
