"Antiques Roadshow" Announces 2018 Production Tour to Historic Venues

Boston, MA—How does a show about the past evolve for the future? With an innovative production tour and new-look episodes! ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, PBS's most-watched ongoing series, releases the 2018 production tour with first-time stops exclusively at distinctive, historic locations across the country.

"This past fall while filming at a Gilded Age mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, I saw immediately that capturing hidden treasures and guest stories against backgrounds rich with history brought a new depth to our show," said ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko. "Holding events at these locations allows our cameras to go outdoors, capturing vivid settings and a peek into places that are treasures in their own right. It was a natural next step to create our entire tour with stops at these types of stunning locations."

City locations and dates are announced below, historic venues in each city will be revealed closer to each event date.
