'Antiques Roadshow' to pull into Indy this summer

January 14, 2016

Grab your knick-knacks, pewter figurines, Beaux-Arts chairs and yard-sale etchings: “Antiques Roadshow” is coming back to Indianapolis.

The enduring public-television show devoted to determining the worth of family heirlooms will hold an appraisal event in Indianapolis on July 9, according to the Public Broadcasting Service.

The last time the show held an event in Indianapolis was in 2002, according to PBS’s website. The show started its 20th season on Jan. 4.

At appraisal events, the “Antiques Roadshow” production team typically sees more than 5,000 people who bring more than 10,000 items to be examined by 70 to 80 appraisers in 20 different categories.

Attendees are required to apply for a ticket to the appraising event and will have a chance to get two items appraised. If an appraiser believes a particular treasure would make an interesting TV segment, the attendee will be asked to sign a release for appearing on air.

Those wishing to attend can apply by going to the PBS ticketing website. The deadline for applying is April 18.
