Inaugural Balls

News and Information

Washington Society comes out in full force for inaugural balls throughout the Washington, DC area. President-elect Trump has chosen to hold only 2 “official” balls – a departure from the 10 official balls President Obama held in 2009. These 2 official galas are ticketed events open to the general public and sponsored by the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC). There is also an official ball – the Salute to Our Armed Services Ball  –  hosted specifically, and exclusively, to honor the U.S. armed forces, veterans, and first responders.

The official PIC Balls have historically been attended by the new President and Vice President. The location of these events, along with any details about dining and entertainment, is still to be announced by the PIC.  

In addition, there are several unofficial balls around town celebrating the incoming administration. These events are organized by state societies, non-profit and other professional, trade or military organizations. The new President and VP are invited to these unofficial galas, but their attendance is not guaranteed. Tickets are required for ALL these events, which vary from Black Tie affairs to themed galas. Fine food, cocktails and all manner of entertainment – from live music to dancing to Boardwalk games and photo booths – is in store for party goers eager to celebrate the new President.

Washington, DC, is fortunate to have an impressive selection of historic and iconic venues in which to hold these inaugural celebrations. Several museums, hotels and other historic buildings in and around the Washington metro area are booked to host these balls.
