UPDATE 12/16/20: Please see the following important update from the JCCIC regarding public attendance at the 59th Inaugural Ceremonies.

The Committee has decided to limit public attendance at the inaugural events for public safety. As such, our office has not received inauguration tickets to distribute this year, and we are unable to fulfill your ticket request.

When the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) first organized in June of 2020, our bipartisan, bicameral membership kicked off the planning for the Inaugural with the goal of hosting ceremonies that were as safe, traditional, and inclusive as possible.

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.

The JCCIC is exploring enhanced opportunities to watch the ceremonies online, in addition to the traditional televised national broadcast.
