Antiques Roadshow will visit Living History Farms in Urbandale on Monday, June 10, 2024, for an all-day appraisal event as part of the series’ 29th production tour! Guests will receive free verbal evaluations of their antiques and collectibles by experts from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each ticketed guest is invited to bring two items for appraisal.

Antiques Roadshow held a sweepstakes to give away free tickets to the appraisal event, which closed for entries on March 19, 2024. Winners will be drawn at random among those who entered and will be notified by Roadshow that they have won tickets by mid-April 2024.

Those who would like to guarantee their admission will have the opportunity to support Iowa PBS and attend the June appraisal event Monday, April 8. During the airing of Antiques Roadshow beginning at 7 p.m., fans will be able to donate $500 per ticket to this special daylong event. Tickets will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis from Iowa PBS’s online donation portal or by calling 800.779.7000. Those interested will not be able to donate for tickets before 7 p.m. on April 8.

These tickets are general admission tickets for the Antiques Roadshow appraisal event, so guests may arrive any time between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on June 10. Each ticket holder will only be admitted once, must wait in the regular lines, and may bring two items for appraisal.

Those who would like the full Roadshow experience may also donate $250 for a pair (2) of tickets to attend a private reception the night before the event at the beautiful Country Lane Lodge near Adel. Guests will hear from the program’s producers, mingle with some of the appraisers and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets to the reception do not include the Monday appraisal event at Living History Farms, but can also be obtained via donation starting April 8 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are limited and must be paid for in total at the time of donation. There will be no installment payment options. Pledges for tickets must be a new donation, not part of a current, sustaining gift. All tickets are electronic, and will arrive ahead of the June 10 event via email. All guests must have a ticket to attend the Antiques Roadshow recording on June 10, 2024. Tickets will not be available at the door.
