For 25 years, “Antiques Roadshow” has uncovered treasures across the country.

In 2014, “Antiques Roadshow” filmed at the Albuquerque Convention Center.bright spot

“Holding events at these locations allows our cameras to film appraisals in and around places that are treasures in their own right, adding an exciting depth to our show,” said Marsha Bemko, “Antiques Roadshow” executive producer. “I can’t wait to see what treasures we uncover in Santa Fe. And stay tuned, we’ll be revealing the historic location we’ve selected very soon.”

Also on the 2020 tour is Williamsburg, Virginia, Nashville, Tennessee, Boston and Estes Park, Colorado. The tour begins on April 28, 2020.

“New Mexico PBS is proud to welcome ‘Antiques Roadshow’ back to New Mexico for their fourth visit, when they come to Santa Fe on June 16, 2020,” said Franz Joachim, CEO and General Manager, NMPBS.  “In the very beginning, back in 1996, Albuquerque was the sixth city chosen for taping of the new series. In 2002, a 9th century Tang Dynasty Lion was brought in, bringing tears to the eyes of the appraiser, and still ranks as one of the most valuable finds in ARS history, valued at $120,000–$250,000.  ‘Antiques Roadshow’ returned in 2014 to Albuquerque, discovering more amazing finds.  What interesting, historical and valuable items will they find in Santa Fe?”

Admission to the series is free, but tickets are required and must be obtained in advance.
