Volunteer for Antiques Roadshow this Summer!

Antiques Roadshow Austin 2014

Antiques Roadshow has announced its 2014 Summer Tour destinations and they’re making a stop at the Austin Convention Center on Saturday, June 28, 2014. To successfully run the appraisal event, Antiques Roadshow relies on local public television stations to help recruit volunteers from the local community. Volunteering for Antiques Roadshow is a great way to meet new people, have fun and participate in public television. Those individuals who volunteer can even have two items appraised!

Interested? Here’s some more information to know about volunteering for Antiques Roadshow:

  • The minimum age to volunteer is 18.
  • Volunteers are assigned various tasks including crowd control, welcoming guests, production assistance and more.
  • All Antiques Roadshow volunteer positions require standing or walking throughout the 12 hour event. Please ensure that you are able and willing to participate in this physically demanding day.
  • Breakfast, lunch, snacks and Antiques Roadshow polo shirts will be provided to all volunteers. Volunteers are required to wear the Antiques Roadshow polo shirt throughout the event.

All volunteers must attend a training session on Friday, June 27 from 4-6pm (the day before the event) and should plan on arriving at the Convention Center at 6:30am on Saturday, June 28. At check-in volunteers must show a government issued ID. Please note: attendance at Friday’s volunteer training is mandatory and volunteers must commit to assisting for the entire day on Saturday from 6:30am to approximately 7pm.

If you’re interested in volunteering for Antiques Roadshow, please register to be a volunteer at klru.org/volunteer.

If you would like to attend Antiques Roadshow but are unable to volunteer, we have a limited number of general admission tickets available for your $400 donation to the station.
