St. Louis, MO — January 31, 2017 — Fans of Antiques Roadshow, one of the most popular shows airing on the Nine Network, can apply now through April 10 to have their items appraised at an all-day event on Saturday, July 8.

Antiques Roadshow, the 14-time Emmy Award nominated show, airs Mondays on Nine Network at 7 p.m. Central.

“The Nine Network couldn’t be happier to welcome back Antiques Roadshow for the first time in over 15 years,” said Nine Network President and CEO Jack Galmiche. “It’s consistently one of our most-watched shows and gives us a chance to host an event we know our viewers are extremely excited about.”

Antiques Roadshow is also accepting furniture submissions for the 2017 tour. The series is looking for a few pieces of furniture to appraise and display on the set. Selected pieces will be transported to the event and back at no cost to the owner. For more details visit: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/furniture/.

The Nine Network’s own Antiques Roadshow-style event, Trash or Treasure, a partnership with the Kodner Gallery, regularly draws large crowds for appraisals in more than 20 categories. The annual event gives fans another chance to determine the worth of their most prized possessions.
