2017 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony
President-Elect Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony will take place on January 20, 2017 on the steps of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.
Tickets to the inauguration are free of charge. However, because of the high demand of citizens wanting to see Mr. Trump take the Oath of Office and give his inaugural address, it’s best to apply as soon as possible. People wishing to attend the 2017 inauguration and sit in reserved seating can apply for free tickets through our U.S. Senators or members of Congress. You can also attend the inauguration without a ticket by standing along the parade route or near the Capitol in non-reserved areas.
The inauguration is overseen by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. Please check their website for more information as we get closer to January 20. You should also check out the website set up by the Washington, D.C. city government for inauguration visitors.
Official inaugural balls are usually by invite only. At this time, there is no specific information yet available on when and where the official balls will be. Numerous organizations usually put together their own inaugural balls, and sell tickets to the public. A quick search online will help you find various listings of potential unofficial inaugural balls and parties that you may be able to attend.
