Presidential Inauguration - January 20, 2021

This year we've been forced to adjust age-old traditions to protect public health. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and recent rise in cases, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) has decided to limit attendance at the ceremony to Members of Congress and a select few invitees. No other in-person tickets will be issued, but the ceremony will be available for all to view online. While not the ideal celebration, the country can still come together for this historic inauguration in a safe way.
Additional information can be accessed on the JCCIC website:
Following the ceremonies, commemorative ticket bundles and program packets will be made available.

Due to recent developments surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, several tours and public attractions in Washington D.C. have been canceled or closed to prevent the spread of the illness. If you are planning a visit to Washington, please check the operating status of tourist attractions below:
