If you don’t have tickets to Hazzard Homecoming, no worries! You can buy them this weekend at the event in Sperryville, Virginia on Route 522. Call around, and you might find a hotel room in the towns of Front Royal, Luray, or Culpeper. Sperryville itself is a sleepy town of 350 souls, so be prepared to drive a little for your bed.
Tips for first-timers: Pack a cooler with plenty of bottled water and snacks. Bring hand sanitizer, bug repellent, and sunscreen. Don’t forget the camera! Bring something to carry around all your Dukes goodies in.
Plan for hot weather and pack some just-in-case rain ponchos. There are no refunds on account of weather conditions.
Admission is $15 for 1 day, $20 for the weekend. Kids 10 and under free, adults over 65 free, active military members with ID, free.
Autograph fees vary by cast member, ranging from $5.00 on up, for stuff you bring. If you buy an item from a cast member, the autograph is usually included. Note, autographs cannot always be personalized and each cast member has their own policy.
A good autograph strategy is to purchase a photo that has more than one cast member on it. For example, Cathy and Sonny will both be there. Sonny usually has a good Enos/Daisy photo. If you buy it from him, he’ll sign it, then you can have Cathy sign it too. Cathy might charge a few bucks for her part, but you’ve got the idea.
Autograph lines for John, Cathy and Jimmy tend to be long. John is only there Sunday, and because of that, his line is probably going to have an extra wait. So plan your Saturday autographs around who you really want to see the most; get in that line first; then get in line for the next person, ect. Cast members do their very best to try and meet everyone. As long as you get there early, and you’re patient, odds are you’ll get to see most everything and everybody. Gates open at 9 am Saturday and 9:30 am Sunday.
