Meet Me at the J on Inauguration Day
Washington DCJCC

$15 Adults/$8 Children
Includes the Barack-buffet, classic presidential movies and big screen TV Inaugural streaming

The 16th Street J isn’t open for business on Inauguration Day, but that doesn’t mean we’re not in on the festivities - after all we are within walking distance from the White House!


Join us at 16th and Q to meet your friends and/or family for breakfast/brunch/lunch. We’ll be here for you all day long whether you’re on your way to the swearing-in or to the parade, looking for a place to meet and eat, or on your way back from the festivities and hungry.

The latest from Metro on attending the inauguration festivities for President-elect Barack Obama: If you live or you're staying within two miles of the Capitol, walk instead of taking the train.

And if you don't want to brave the crowds but still be near the heart of all the action, we will be streaming the news coverage on a big screen TV and showing classic presidential movies in the Goldman Theater.

Our parking lot will closed to the public on January 20.  However we have a limited number of Inauguration Day parking spots available for program participants.

To reserve your parking space at the 16th Street J parking lot for
