The Inauguration ceremony is taking place today starting at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, although the swearing-in ceremony itself doesn’t start until later. President-Elect Donald Trump will be sworn in at approximately noon. But exactly where is the Inauguration and where can you find seats? It’s not as complicated as it might sound.
The tickets have been distributed on a color-coded basis: silver, orange, green yellow, blue, and red. However, attending by general admission does not require a ticket, because these seats are farther away from the main event. If you are attending with a color-coded ticket, then you’ll have to go through a security checkpoint. Security gates open at 6 a.m. Eastern.
Color-Coded Ticket Map
Here is a map color-coded to show where each ticket set can be seated:
