Since January 16, there have been daily inauguration events, culminating in the January 20, 2021 ceremonies of the 59th Presidential Inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in on the west front of the U.S. Capitol building. After they take their oaths of office, now-President Biden will deliver an inaugural address laying out his vision to defeat the pandemic, build back better, and unify and heal the nation. After the oaths, there will be the traditional parade review, a wreath laid at Arlington Cemetery and a Presidential escort down 15th Street. The day will be closed out with a 90-minute “Celebrating America Primetime Special,” hosted by Tom Hanks. From virtual concerts and galas, to honoring souls lost to war or to Covid-19, the 2021 Inauguration promises to honor and elevate the spirit of America. All inaugural events can be streamed live at the official inauguration page or can be watched at leisure on YouTube.
