Intrigued by yesterday’s announcement about our Downton Abbey Super Fan Party in February? Just wait until you hear what’ll be on offer there for the 200 lucky attendees who snag tickets via our Bay Area drawings beginning this week.

Tomorrow (Thursday, January 8) we’ll be revealing the location for the first of our five drawings taking place around the Bay Area via KQED’s Facebook Page and Twitter feed. It’ll be somewhere in San Francisco on Saturday (January 10), but in the meantime, here are just a few of the covetable Downton-inspired prizes on offer at the Super Fan Party itself in a secret SF location on Wednesday, February 25:

So… how do you get a ticket to the Super Fan Party?

Simple: for five weeks starting January 10, we’ll be holding a draw for 20 tickets each week. You can enter your name each Saturday at a particular location around the Bay Area. The five weekly locations will be San Francisco (Jan 10), Oakland (Jan 17), San Jose (Jan 24), San Mateo (Jan 31) and Sausalito (Feb 7), and each will be inspired by a different Downton Abbey character.

Earlier every week, we’ll be revealing the exact location and the time that you can come to enter your name in the drawing for one of 20 tickets — and each ticket allows two entrants into the party. Make sure to Like KQED on Facebook and follow us on Twitter right now to get the details as soon as they’re made public. We’ll reveal the first location in San Francisco on Thursday, January 8 and you don’t want to miss out.
