Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

For many reasons, the Inauguration is going to look different this year. The Presidential Inauguration Committee is strongly encouraging everyone to follow public health best practices and NOT travel to Washington, D.C.

Instead, this year you’ll be able to join in the ceremonies and festivities from the comfort of your home!

Many of the usual inaugural events are being reimagined to have a very limited footprint, both in order to protect public health and to make it more accessible to folks joining in from all across the country.

Here’s a brief schedule of the events for the three days of inauguration celebrations. To watch the inauguration events, visit, or go to

Memorial to Lives Lost
On Tuesday, join President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to honor the neighbors, friends, and loved ones we have lost to COVID-19 while paying tribute to the strength, courage, and patriotism of the healthcare and frontline workers who have risked their own health to serve those in need.
