2021 Inauguration Celebration (virtual)

Join the Democrats Abroad Lyon chapter in celebrating the historic inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on January 20.

Kamala will take the Oath of Office at 11:30 AM Washington, D.C. time (17:30 in Lyon), followed 15 minutes later by Joe at 11:45 AM (17:45 Lyon).

We'll be starting our event an hour earlier for some interesting and fun activities, including:

  • A look back at some Famous Inaugural Speeches
  • Poems and Readings
  • An Inauguration Trivia Quiz
  • Vote for the Best- and Worst-Dressed First Ladies
  • Inauguration Ball Music

Although, according to the Washington Post,  some stateside Americans will be celebrating with special eats and drinks including Ice Cream Jubilee's Cuppa Joe, and Amtrak Joe's Pilsner and Madam Veep's IPA beers from Atlas Brew Works, we'll be able to provision ourselves with food from the world's gastronomical capitol and champagne.

Bring your favorite snacks and beverages and join us for some virtual celebration!
