Hazzard Run 2016 features Tom Wopat Concert & General Lee Parade for Dukes Fans in the Smokies!

It’s the 7th Annual Hazzard Run on October 8 – 9, 2016 as fans of the 70’s hit television show, Dukes of Hazzard hit the road to Gatlinburg! Hazzard Run 2016 features a Tom Wopat (Luke Duke) concert performance, a parade of “General Lee” cars and other “Hazzard County” vehicles, and autograph sessions with Wopat, Rick Hurst (Deputy Cletus Hogg) and Sonny Shroyer (Deputy Sheriff Enos Strate)…and of course, the  colorful convoy from Nashville to Gatlinburg.


The Hazzard Run 2016 convoy heads out of Nashville bright and early on Saturday, October 8 and rolls in to Gatlinburg at 3:30 p.m. for the Hazzard County Parade. If you’re out on I-40 and see this amazing convoy of about 30 General Lee’s and 30 other tribute cars, give them a friendly wave because they are a fun group of loyal fans of the popular, cult-status TV show.

The Hazzard County Parade begins in a parking lot on Highway 321 East and proceed over Baskins Creek Bypass, down Reagan Drive to the Parkway and end at the parking lot at Cooter’s Place.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 8 fans are invited to Meet & Greet autograph sessions with Tom Wopat, Sonny Shroyer and Rick Hurst.

Tom Wopat will perform “An Intimate Evening of Music and Conversation” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night at The Glenstone Lodge in Gatlinburg. Audiences worldwide adore his rich baritone and Wopat has received two Tony nominations for his work on the Broadway stage. Tickets for the show are $20 per person and available online at Cooters Place Gatlinburg or by phone at 865-430-9909.
