2025 Presidential Inaugural Parade

Thousands of people line Pennsylvania Avenue every four years on January 20th, waiting for the passing of the presidential motorcade during the inaugural parade.



Beginning with the inauguration of George Washington in 1789, through Barack Obama in 2013, Inauguration Day has always presented an opportunity for the nation to begin anew. The day begins, by tradition started by Franklin D. Roosevelt, with a Morning Worship Service in the nation’s capital at the church of the President-elect’s choice. This is followed by the Procession to the Capitol, the swearing-in ceremonies of Vice President and the President on the steps of the United States Capitol, an Inaugural Luncheon, and then the day is capped off by the Presidential Inaugural Parade and various Inaugural Balls.


It is the dream of every band director to be part of the Presidential Inaugural Parade, and we have the experience to assist you in realizing this dream by participating in the upcoming parade on January 20th, 2021.


Music Celebrations has handled the arrangements for many bands in past Presidential Inaugural Parades. With former band directors and managers on staff, we can expertly handle all logistical arrangements while in Washington, D.C. While Music Celebrations cannot guarantee your participation in the parade, we do have the experience to advise you through the process.


Band selection for the Presidential Inaugural Parade will commence by the official Presidential Inaugural Committee following the election in November 2024. All applications for the parade have to take place through the Presidential Inaugural Committee, and are best when sponsored by your United States congressperson, senator, or governor.
