    List of Inauguration Balls

    Many of the inaugural balls are already sold out! You will need to check to see where your state's specific inaugural ball will be held by searching online or contacting your state Republican Party HQ.

    Three official inaugural balls are planned featuring appearances by Trump, including one being dubbed the Big Apple Ball in Washington but with New York-themes dominating under Trump's personal direction, according to TMZ. Details are still developing.
    Here's a list of other, unofficial balls:

    Great American Inaugural Ball

    Deploraball, 7 p.m. Jan. 20 A $250 per plate event that takes eponymous pride in Trump nemesis Hillary Clinton's claim that half of his supporters are "deplorables" is no joke, though there's a lot of snark and sarcasm inherent in this event and its promotion. The reception begins at 7 p.m. at the Bolger Center in Bethesda, Md., just outside Washington, with a silent auction to benefit veterans and event host Gays for Trump, followed by dinner and dancing at 8 p.m. This event has publicly illuminated growing fractures among Trump's most fervent supporters among the so-called "alt-right" who helped create the ball via a social media group known as MAGA-3X. Organizers who hoped for an inclusive "big-tent" event have butted heads with event co-founder Tim Treadstone, who has posted homophobic and anti-semitic remarks via @BakedAlaska on Twitter. Milo Yiannopoulos, a Briton who works as an editor for Breitbart News known for acerbic commentary on and off Twitter where he was recently banned, reportedly is scheduled as a guest of honor.

    Leftist Opposition Groups Attempting to Shut Down Inauguration

    Transportation at the Inauguration

    Inaugural events attendees are encouraged to use public transportation, as many streets in and around the Capitol Grounds and the National Mall area will be closed to private automobiles for much of the day. Metro plans to run special rail service on Inauguration Day to support large crowds traveling to and from the National Mall and other events in the region.

    • Metrorail will open at 4 a.m. and close at midnight. Peak fares will be in effect from 4 a.m. until 9 p.m. After 9 p.m., off-peak fares will be in effect.
    • Five of Metro's 91 stations -- Archives, Mt Vernon Square, Federal Triangle, Smithsonian and Pentagon - will be closed due to enhanced security measures.
    • For 17 consecutive hours -- from opening until 9 p.m. -- trains will run frequently on all lines, including "Rush Plus" service on the Yellow Line between Franconia-Springfield and Greenbelt.
    • Riders planning to use Metro are encouraged to purchase their SmarTrip card in advance to avoid long lines on Inauguration Day.

Before January 13, visit to purchase a special $10 one-day pass good for unlimited Metrorail and Metrobus trips on Inauguration Day.
    • Metro recommends that riders plan their trip to the National Mall without transferring between lines. There is a station near the National Mall on each Metro line.

    • Approximately 50 routes will operate with detours due to Inauguration events and road closures. Expect delays and detours. Please allow additional time.
    • Routes that normally cross the National Mall will turn around at special locations outside the secure area; use Metrorail instead. Visit for information.
    • Temporary bus stops will be marked around the security perimeter of the event where bus routes will end.


    • MetroAccess paratransit service for customers with disabilities will operate identical hours to rail and bus schedules.
    • MetroAccess customers are encouraged to plan extra time to travel due to increased traffic throughout the service area. Due to road closures, MetroAccess vehicles will only be able to drop off customers several blocks from the National Mall and parade route.
    • MetroAccess vehicles will not be permitted access to streets that are closed. All MetroAccess users should be prepared for detours and extended travel times.


    • Metro has approximately 60,000 parking spaces in 29 lots and 22 garages throughout the Washington region for private motorists to park on Inauguration Day. Many of these facilities are located near major highways, such as I-95/I-495 (Capital Beltway).

    Thank you so much for this information and I hope William has a wonderful experience in DC!! Thank you ALIPACers for making his trip possible. I know he will do much good there and impress those who must change their ways see our needs and points of view on immigration, jobs, trade and border security. Thank you William so very much for all you have done, are doing and will do for our citizens and legal immigrants.

    We love you!!

    Today is a great day for all humanity. This movement has gone viral and global. The world manipulators hiding in a sick shroud of globalism will soon understand and face the reality of the simple fact that we are not citizens of the world, we are citizens of nations of the world.
