    The April 7 ticket application deadline has passed. You must have a ticket to attend an ANTIQUES ROADSHOW event. Tickets will not be available at the door.

    If you have applied online, you can use your email address to check your ticket status using the online Ticket Checker.

    We will e-mail all online ticket applicants a reminder about the online Ticket Checker in early-May.

    This will be the only way to find out if you were selected to receive tickets. We will not send email notifications.

    • Each ticket holder can bring two items (and must bring at least one item). We do not prescreen ticket holders' items and cannot suggest which items ticket holders should choose to bring.
    • If you contact a ROADSHOW appraiser regarding the item(s) you plan to bring to the event, then we cannot consider the item(s) for taping.
    • Your item(s) must fit through a standard door.

    • If you plan to bring a painting for appraisal, please be prepared for the possibility of an extra-long wait in line. You're welcome to bring a painting, but please keep in mind you may not have to wait as long for an appraisal of a different type of object.

    • You must be able to carry or move your item throughout the event. We do not provide dollies or carts or assistance of any kind. You can bring your own cart or dolly as long as it does not have metal wheels.
