It’s that time of year again. The 2013 “The Antiques Roadshow” schedule was just announced, and fans of the show have begun planning their vacations around the dates and cities in which episodes of the show will be taped. In 2013, PBS’ ‘Roadshow’ will be visiting the following eight cities:
- Detroit, Mich. June 1
- Jacksonville, Fla. June 8
- Anaheim, Calif. June 22
- Boise, Idaho June 29
- Knoxville, Tenn. July 13
- Baton Rouge, La. July 27
- Kansas City, Mo. August 10
- Richmond, Va. August 17
Anyone interested in visiting the ‘Roadshow’ in person can apply for two free tickets by sending a postcard to “City Name” ROADSHOW (e.g., Detroit ROADSHOW), Box 249, Canton, MA 02021. Applicants, who must be 18 or older, should include their name, address of residence and mailing address (if different than residence). Only one application is accepted per household.
Applicants will be selected at random to receive tickets; chances of being selected will depend on the total number of eligible applicants for each city and are not affected by how early or late applications are received before the April 8 deadline.
You may include a preference for morning, midday or afternoon entrance time, although Antiques Roadshow cannot guarantee the entrance time of your choice.
Postcards should be no smaller than 3 1/2 by 5 inches, and no larger than 4 1/4 by 6 inches. Do not send postcard applications inside envelopes or other packaging. Postcards, letters or other cards sent inside envelopes or packaging may be disqualified. You must send your postcard by regular mail, as Antiques Roadshow cannot process overnight postcard applications. Any postcards that are illegible or incomplete may be disqualified.
Antiques Roadshow also cannot confirm receipt of postcard applications. Postcard applicants who are chosen to receive tickets will not receive a confirmation prior to receiving the tickets; tickets will be mailed to successful applicants approximately three weeks prior to the event date.
‘Antiques Roadshow’ ticket applications can also be filled out online at http://to.pbs.org/VSJe16. Your name, mailing address and a valid e-mail address will be necessary to apply online.
