With the purchase of a ticket guests will have access to two official Inaugural balls for the second Inaugural of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden taking place on Monday, January 21st .
“The President and Vice President’s second Inaugural will continue their commitment to giving Americans from across the country the chance to share in this celebration,” said Stephen J. Kerrigan, President and CEO of the Presidential Inaugural Committee in a statement from the White House. “Additionally, by holding a smaller number of Inaugural balls in a centralized location, we are continuing a more than 200-year-old tradition while reducing the burden on local law enforcement and security personnel, as well as on DC residents.”
According to the PIC, Additional details and ticketing information for The Inaugural Ball and other Inaugural weekend events will be released as soon as they become available.
