2017 Presidential Inauguration Tickets

Congressman Bridenstine’s office has received more requests for presidential inauguration ceremony tickets than the number of tickets our office has been allotted. We are working to accommodate as many requests as possible. However, new requests for tickets can no longer be accepted.


Special Note: Please be aware that tickets are not required to attend the inaugural ceremony. Standing space will be available on the National Mall beyond the areas reserved for ticket holders. JumboTrons and speakers will be placed around the Mall to allow everyone to see and hear the inaugural ceremony.  

Please keep in mind that it can be very cold in Washington during January, lodging during the time of the inauguration is at a premium, and it is likely to be very difficult to move about the city because of large crowds, road closures and high demand for public transportation. Long waits in line are to be expected because of extraordinary security measures. 

Tickets will only be available for pick-up at Congressman Bridenstine's Washington DC office (216 Cannon House of Office Building) on January 17th - 19th from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Tickets not picked up by 3:30 PM on January 19 will be released to others. Congressman Bridenstine's office will not be open on January 20th.

Important Note: Inaugural ceremony tickets are irreplaceable.  All requesters who will receive tickets from Congressman Bridenstine’s office will receive a confirmation from Karen Schmitt via email and asked to designate one person who will pick up tickets from the Congressman’s Washington office. The person so designated must present photo ID and sign for the tickets upon pick up.
