In the meantime, here’s a quick look at the timeline of today’s inauguration events:
🇺🇸 Morning: President-elect Joe Biden, Dr. Jill Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and her husband, Mr. Douglas Emhoff will attend a church service of St. Matthew the Apostle.
🇺🇸 Noon: Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States at the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.
🇺🇸 Afternoon: the President, the First Lady, the Vice President and the Second Gentleman will visit the Tomb of the unknown Soldier at the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
On their Official Presidential Inauguration Facebook Page, President-elect, Joe Biden & Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris invite us to join them virtually to watch the 2021 Presidential Inauguration Ceremony for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The 59th Presidential Inauguration will be a historic and exciting event that showcases the strength and diversity of our nation — and one that every American can enjoy from their home.
While the inauguration will look different, we will continue to honor the inaugural traditions Americans have always known: an official outdoor swearing-in ceremony, community service events, a reimagined parade, and virtual celebrations that bring the country together.
They’ve invited all Americans to be a part of this inauguration by watching from home, rather than traveling to Washington, DC, in accordance with public health guidelines. Learn more about the Inauguration at BidenInaugural.org.
