The Dukes of Hazzard cast will be together again for the Dukes of Hazzard “Reunion in Georgia” Classic Car Show & Music Festival. The Old Middle Georgia Speedway will play host to thousands of Dukes of Hazzard fans as they get together to see John Schneider, Catherine Bach, Tom Wopat, James Best, Sonny Shroyer, Rick Hurst, and Ben Jones, as well as checking out some great cars at the car show, listening to some fantastic music, and participating in tons of great family activities.

Livingston Parish, Louisiana will become Hazzard County for a day on Sept 29, 2012! Most of the original Dukes of Hazzard cast is scheduled to appear in person, including Catherine Bach, John Schneider, Tom Wopat, James Best, Sonny Shroyer, Rick Hurst, Don Pedro Colley and Byron Cherry.
You can expect to see a number of General Lees on site, as well as vintage muscle cars of every make and model. Live music by Billy Dean and Johnny Lee will be featured. Best of all, admission is FREE!
But you’ll still need to pay for autographs and such, and each individual cast member has their own fee and policy. Bring money!
HazzardNet promotes all things Dukes of Hazzard, so we’re happy to pass this news along. However, we have seen conflicting press releases and advertising regarding the cast appearances – namely, when it comes to Tom Wopat and Ben Jones. Rather than speak for the event, we’re gonna point you directly to the Dukes of Hazzard Family Reunion and Car Show Facebook Page where you can sort things out. Please submit any and all questions you might have about this event directly to the organizers.
As with all large-scale Dukes events, we suggest you book your hotel ASAP and plan to arrive at the event early!
Unless you’ve been hiding out in the mountains with your moonshine still, you’ve probably heard that Hazzard Homecoming is taking place August 11 & 12! It’s located at the Ben Venue Racecourse, intersection of Hwy 211 and Route 729 in Amissville, VA. This is just down the road from Sperryville.
Hazzard Homecoming will feature personal appearances by the surviving principal cast of The Dukes of Hazzard. Yes, both John Schneider and Tom Wopat – Bo and Luke Duke – will be there! As will the charming Catherine Bach.
We’ll also have the intrepid presence of the Hazzard County Sheriff’s Department; James Best, Sonny Shroyer and Rick Hurst. Hosting the shindig is Ben Jones, ol’ Cooter himself, with help from his wife, the lovely Miss Alma.
Of course, you can expect to see lots of General Lees too! Along with Daisy’s Jeep, Uncle Jesse’s pickup and Hazzard County patrol cars.
There’s literally too much going on for us to list, so head over to Cootersplace.com for the complete details. There’s a long lineup of concerts, BMX bike stunts, professional wrestling and whatever else they pull out of the hat.
Best of all, you’ll be surrounded by thousands of other Dukes fans just like you, who can’t get enough of the Dukes of Hazzard!
It’s been hinted by the organizers that this could be “the last time the entire cast is together.” We’re not going to read into that too deeply or speak anything negative into existence. What we will say, however, is that we know just how much time, work and expense go into putting these events together. There’s been some form of DukesFest/Hazzard Homecoming for so long now that we’ve come to expect them.
But you never know.
So, clear your calendar, gas up the car, pack a cooler and make the pilgrimage to Hazzard Homecoming! Oh, and before we forget – YEEEHAAAA!!
His popularity began as “Bo Duke” and it hasn’t slowed down ever since! John Schneider is a veteran actor who has appeared in many TV shows, including “The Dukes of Hazzard”, “Smallville”, “Glee”, “Trick My What?” and more. He has numerous movie roles on his resume’, plus he’s had a successful recording career and still does a concert now and then. So, what is John doing at the Rod & Custom Car Show in Monticello, Iowa on Feb 25 & 26?
It says something about the enduring nature of The Dukes of Hazzard that “Bo and Luke Duke” still draw crowds at car shows. And the fact that John Schneider and Tom Wopat are still willing to sign trunk lids and toy General Lees, says something special about them both.
John will be at the Monticello Berndes Center on Saturday, Feb 25 from noon until 4:00 p.m. He will return that same evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Sunday, Feb 26, he will be there from 10:00 a.m. t0 2:00 p.m. Visit the show website for more information.
If you go, remember that getting there early is the name of the game. We do not know how much John is charging for autographs at this show. Bring extra cash, and bring only what you can reasonably afford to have signed. Merchandise and photos are usually available at John’s booth.
Calling all Tom Wopat fans! Feb 18 & 19, Tom Wopat, otherwise known as Luke Duke, will be at the Canton Hot Rod Show, at the Canton Memorial Civic Center, in…that’s right, Canton, Ohio! He will be available for autographs on Saturday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., then returning that night from 7 p.m. to 9 pm.
Sunday, he’ll be there from 12 noon to 5 p.m. Admission is $10, and autographs are only $5.00 for an item you bring, or, $10 for an autographed photo. Tom will have his music CD’s available for $20.
A General Lee, provided by our friend “TimDuke”, is also scheduled to be there!
Tom doesn’t do many non-musical appearances, so this is a rare chance to see him in person and outside of the theater!
You’ll want to arrive early for the best parking.

Feb 4 & 5, James Best, known to us all as Rosco P. Coltrane, will be at the Mount Dora Art Festival in Mount Dora, FL. While this isn’t a Dukes event, it’s a good chance to see Jimmie and check out his paintings.
Feb 17, 18 & 19, Tom Wopat, alias “Luke Duke” will be at the Canton Hot Rod Show at the Canton Memorial Civic Center in…you guessed it, Canton OH! A General Lee is scheduled to be with him at the show. See the official website for show hours and admission fees. Note, Tom doesn’t do a lot of Dukes-themed shindigs, so this is a rare chance for a meet & greet. If you are interested in Tom’s vocal performances, check out the upcoming show dates on his website.
March 23, 24 & 25, Ben Jones, a/k/a Cooter Davenport, will be at the International Auto Showcase at the New York State Fairgrounds. This huge indoor car show will feature classic and custom cars with an emphasis on old-school muscle. Cooter is always a crowd-pleaser, stop by and say howdy!
And don’t forget, tickets go on sale this Friday, Jan 13 at noon for the Tom Wopat & John Schneider concert on April 12 & 13! Last year’s gig at this venue completely sold out, so we’ve been alerting y’all about this as much as we can.
Us Dukes of Hazzard fans have it good, don’t we? Stay tuned for more Dukes of Hazzard news as it comes!
Tickets for the Tom Wopat and John Schneider concert at the Fallsview Casino Resort go on sale January 13! The casino doesn’t have it listed yet but Tom himself released this information. The shows are April 12 & 13 in Ontario, Canada, just on the other side of Niagra Falls. You’ll need a passport, but you got plenty of time to get that together. Your local post office can give you the passport application and explain what’s required.
Next, if you’ve got a million dollars in your pocket, why not blow it on LEE 1? Yes, the most famous, and also infamous, first General Lee is up for a Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ, starting January 15. The car is famous for being the very first jumped General Lee in the first Dukes of Hazzard episode, “One-Armed Bandits.” It later appeared in the episode “Repo Men” , repainted green, posing as a wrecked stock car.
When Dukes production left Georgia, LEE1 was left behind in a junkyard. It was eventually discovered in the late 90’s and purchased for an alleged $400 bucks. The new owner, after much ballyhoo, turned around and auctioned the thing for some 24 grand or so, as-is, wrecked and rusted. How many times LEE1 changed hands after that, we don’t know, but it was eventually restored to be drivable and show-worthy. In Duke circles, arguments abound about whether or not there’s enough original parts on the car to qualify it as “original”, as this was more like building the Bionic General than a normal restoration. Yet somebody will pay a terrific price for LEE1 just for the bragging rights, if past history is any indication.
In other news, the lovely Catherine Bach has joined the cast of “The Young and the Restless”, a long-running daytime soap opera. She will join the set Jan 10, with her first episode appearance expected around Feb 7. She will play a scheming, conniving mother of a scheming, conniving daughter, heck-bent on ruining marriages and fostering mistrust among friends. Sounds like fun!
One more quick thing, tickets for the 2012 Hazzard Homecoming are already on sale. We don’t know who’s gonna be there or what’s happening yet, but hey, it’s on! You’ll get a discount if you buy an e-ticket by March. Swing over to Cooter’s Place for details.
That’s a wrap for now! Stay tuned to HazzardNet, we’ll have more for you soon!
Forever known as Bo and Luke Duke to fans of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” Tom Wopat and John Schneider have come a long way from Hazzard County. Their diverse careers include success in vocal recordings, Broadway performances, theatre productions, concerts, TV and movie roles, and more. They are, without doubt, consummate entertainers who know how to engage and delight an audience.
When peforming together, the audience is treated to a combined talent that is augmented by genuine camaraderie. Rare is the friendship that lasts over 30 years, rarer still a friendship that has survived the brutal pressures of Hollywood and the media.
In concert, Wopat and Schneider display an obvious ease around each other, clearly enjoying themselves and the music that unites them. They give audiences the same good time that they’re having! The only drawbacks to seeing them peform live together, is that the event is far too rare, and the evening seems to end too quickly.
So far for 2012, you have exactly two chances to catch Tom and John in concert: April 12 and April 13 at the Fallsview Casino & Resort in Niagra Falls, Ontario. Tickets will be going on sale in January 2012. Seating is limited to 1,500 in the intimate concert venue, meaning that tickets will go fast.
At this time, we do not know exactly when tickets will become available in January. We will make every effort to post an alert when tickets are on sale. With a total of only 3,000 tickets being available for the weekend, you’ll want to stay in the loop!
