Celebrating the 30th anniversary on the hit 1980's TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard," DukesFest & Hazzard County Fair will feature a full slate of county fair-related activities. The weekend, produced by John & Elly Schneider, will encompass appearances and autograph sessions from show cast members including John Schneider (Bo Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), James Best (Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane), Ben Jones (Cooter Davenport) and Rick Hurst (Clettus Hogg) Sonny Shroyer (Deputy Enos Strate).
"Atlanta Motor Speedway is the perfect venue for the 2008 DukesFest & Hazzard County Fair event," said Schneider. "It is a beautiful facility and after all, it is just miles from where the Dukes were born."
Also scheduled for the weekend is a car show featuring hundreds of world famous 1969 ‘General Lee' Dodge Chargers, trucks and tractors, a demolition derby, stunt shows including an authentic ‘General Lee' jump, craft vendors, lawn mower races, Daisy Dukes contests and a fireworks display. Also local music acts, and a to be announced special guest artist.
Fans will also be treated to carnival rides, a kids' barnyard area complete with a petting zoo, pie eating contests and a question and answer sessions with the entire cast.
Schneider is currently starring on FOX's "Nip/Tuck," and will be featured on a Hallmark mini-series "Shark Swarm" and in the spring, Schneider will co-star on HBO's "12 Miles of Bad Road."
