Comments Off on Antiques Roadshow in Albuquerque: Free Tickets

The Antiques Roadshow TV program visits Albuquerque this summer, and you can get free tickets to see the old-time fun. Maybe even discover that the gorgeous / hideous / just very strange antique thingamabob you inherited is actually worth a fortune!

The Antiques Roadshow will be in Albuquerque on Saturday July 19, 2014. The program is PBS’s highest-rated ongoing primetime series. As part of the summer production tour, New Mexico PBS will host Antiques Roadshow for the all-day appraisal event.

Now through Monday April 7 you can apply online for a pair of Albuquerque Antiques Roadshow free ticketsThe form asks if you prefer a morning, midday, or afternoon admission time although they say there are no guarantees.

Applicants will be selected at random to receive two tickets to visit the Antiques Roadshow set and be considered for broadcast.  I understand that 6,000 ticketed guests will receive free valuations of their antiques and collectibles from specialists from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each guest is invited to take two items for appraisal.

Also, if you have some antique furniture that is just waiting to become famous on TV, the program is now accepting antique furniture applications. A few pieces will be selected for appraisal and display on the set.  Those chosen items will be transported from your home to the Antiques Roadshow set for free.  Send photos of your furniture to audition at this link.   Note that they only want antique furniture for this, not other kinds of antiques. (Your collection of antique chile memorabilia won’t cut it. You’ll just have to apply for free tickets, hope you get in, and take them along yourself.)

This is the third time Antiques Roadshow will have filmed in New Mexico and they expect guests to take more than 10,000 items in total to be appraised. The Albuquerque taping will appear in three episodes of Antiques Roadshow in the 2015 season.

While admission to Antiques Roadshow will be free, you do need to have tickets and apply in advance at this Albuquerque Antiques Roadshow link. You can also call toll-free 1-888-762-3749. Whatever you do, do it on or by  Monday, April 7, 2014 to get your name in the random drawing.
