How can I get tickets to one of the Presidential Inaugural events?

Tickets for Inaugural Events can be obtained through your Congressional representatives. Allocations are decided by each representative, and you can request them through their Congressional offices. Tickets are limited, and lottery systems are often used to distribute tickets to constituencies. In addition to this, tickets will become available through secondary ticket sources as well.

Do I need tickets to watch the Inaugural Parade?

No. Tickets are not required to attend the incoming Presidents historical Inaugural parade. However, there will be several ticketed areas that will be restricted to ticket holders only.

What is a sanctioned Inaugural Gala Ball? What is an un-sanctioned Presidential Inaugural Ball?

Presidential Inaugural Gala Balls are split into two categories - sanctioned and un-sanctioned. At a sanctioned ball, the new President is guaranteed to make an appearance. No so in the un-sanctioned balls - while it is not unprecedented, the President is not expected to attend.

How much do tickets cost?

While ticket to the Inaugural Balls vary in price, the tickets to the Swearing In Ceremony and Inaugural Parade may be abtained from your Congressional Representatives at little to no cost.
