ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is coming to Newport, Rhode Island, for their first ever outdoor appraisal event and show taping on Tuesday, September 19. This all-day appraisal festival will be on the grounds of historic Rosecliff mansion on Bellevue Avenue.  


To successfully run the appraisal event, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW relies on local public television stations to help recruit 125 volunteers from the local community. Rhode Island PBS is pleased to participate in this opportunity, and to invite and welcome you to the ANTIQUES ROADSHOW NEWPORT experience. Volunteering for ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is a great way to meet new people, have fun, and participate in your local public television station. Individuals who volunteer can even have two items appraised!
