The election of a Republican Administration is a big deal with Inauguration events spanning three days, January 13th through January 15th. All events require tickets and you might find it a bit of a challenge in obtaining them.
See the chart below. The main inauguration events have ticket purchase links.
The main inauguration event for Youngkin, Miyares, and Sears is awarded via a lottery which means you can ask for one, but you won’t necessarily get one – and you have to ask by December 22nd.
For the Winsome Sears and Jason Miyares celebration events, it’s a bit more straight forward. Put your tickets in the cart and checkout.
Otherwise, the remaining “Spirit of” events actually require that you’ve already been invited. With that invitation you can use the portal and purchase the ticket packages you want.
The theme of the inaugural events is “Strengthen the Spirit of Virginia Together”.
