New Information About Cooter's Last Stand in July 2017!

Things are shaping up for the next great Dukes of Hazzard event in Luray, VA next July.  Ben and Alma are hard at work planning the weekend and it's going to be awesome.  Ben has shared the following message that has all kinds of new information, check it out.  

Hey Y’all,
As we approach Christmas and the beginning of a new year, Alma and I would like to express our deepest thanks to all of you for your friendship throughout this past year and for many years before that. For us, 2016 was “the best of times and the worst of times”, but the one thing that was always constant is the rock solid support that Hazzard Nation has given us for many years now. That friendship and support is what has made “Cooter’s” an extended family of people from all over the United States and the world, and what has made it just plain ol’ fun to be a part of!

So, “if the Good Lord is willing and the creeks don’t rise”, we are going to have a gathering of Hazzard Nation that we hope will be unforgettable for you and your family. “Cooter’s Last Stand” will take place on Saturday, July 29th and Sunday, July 30th at Cooter’s in the Valley, our new store near Luray, Virginia in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Our new location is surrounded by an enormous field, big enough to handle tens of thousands of festival fans.

The show will be a celebration of “The Dukes of Hazzard” and of Southern culture, and promises to be the last great gathering of our cast in one place at one time. It will feature two days of great music, cast signings, car shows, “rassling”, kid’s activities, fireworks, a car stunt show and a Civil War battle re-enactment. And of course there will be plenty of good Southern cooking around, there will be lots of vendors, and like always parking is free.

Our new location is in Page County Virginia, which provides a lot of choices for folks to spend a night or two. There are inns, motels, hotels, bed and breakfast homes, plus campgrounds and cabins in the Blue Ridge Mountains and along the Shenadoah River. And “Cooter’s in the Valley” is less than ten miles from Interstate 81, a major North/South highway and a beautiful ride in and of itself. A list of places to stay accompanies this letter.

“Early Bird” tickets (until March 1st) are $25 for one day and a two day ticket is $35. Tickets for “younguns” 12 and under are half-price and children 2 and under are admitted free. Since the “Dukes of Hazzard” is America’s favorite family show and this is a family event, there will be no alcoholic beverages sold at this festival.

Miss Alma and I will do all we can to make this the premiere family festival in the United States during 2017. It will be down-home fun in the Hazzard County tradition. Owners of Hazzard County cars (Generals, Police Cars, Daisy Jeeps, etc.) will be entitled to two free tickets by registering below on eventbrite.
Miltary Families and Veterans will be eligble for $5 Discount on “Cooter’s Last Stand” Tickets at the gate with ID.
