59th Presidential Inauguration Swearing-in Ceremony


The 59th Presidential Inauguration Swearing-in Ceremony will be held at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 20, 2021.  For additional information, please visit and check back frequently since it will be updated as more information becomes available.

Update as of December 16, 2020. 

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC), would traditionally distribute 200,000 tickets for the official ceremonies at the Capitol and provide ticket bundles to Members of Congress to distribute to constituents.

The JCCIC, in consultation with diversified public health and medical experts and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, has determined that this global pandemic and the rise in COVID-19 cases warranted a difficult decision to limit attendance at the 59th Inaugural Ceremonies to a live audience that resembles a State of the Union. They are also working on enhanced opportunities to watch the ceremonies online, in addition to the traditional televised national broadcast.


Members of Congress will not be getting tickets to distribute to the public to attend the ceremony in person.
