A&E's Duck Dynasty stars Willie Robertson and John Luke Robertson are slated to be part of the Alcorn County Fair and Arena's "Kids and Family Day" on Sept. 21.
"Their appearance is being highly anticipated by many fans here and in the surrounding areas," said fair committee chairman Chris Porterfield. "We are extremely pleased to be working with A&E's Duck Dynasty on this event."
The Robertsons became instant stars once their reality television series aired on A&E in March of 2012. The reality show, depicting the everyday life of a family who makes duck products for hunters, became the most watched program in A&E's 29-year history when 9.6 million people viewed the season finale.
"The experience is going to be unique and fun for our fans," said Arena General Manager Tammy Genovese. "It's going to be something special for the Arena and Fair."
A&E's most-watched series features the West Monroe, La., family living the American dream while operating a thriving business and remaining true to their family values.
Duck Commander was started by Phil Robertson in 1973. Willie, the third son of Phil and Kay Robertson, is the CEO of the business.
Willie often finds it hard to run the business with most of the employees being members of the family. The show follows the family straying true to their outdoorsman lifestyle and southern roots each week while being part of a multi-million dollar empire.
Known for their long beards, the Robertson men find themselves in comical situations each Wednesday night on A&E. Willie often finds his hands full dealing with his brothers, Jase and Jep, and good ole uncle Si at Duck Commander.
Pre-sale of tickets – with cost to be released later this week – for the event start July 8. The public sale begins the July 9. Tickets can be purchased on line by calling the box office at 287-7779 or going to the Arena website at www.crossroadsarena.com
