Inauguration of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, January 20, 1961

An inauguration is a formal ceremony to mark the beginning of a major public leader''s term of office. The "inaugural address" is a speech given during this ceremony which informs the people of his/her intentions as a leader.

Political inaugurations often feature lavish ceremonies, in which the politician publicly takes his or her oath of office in front of a large crowd of spectators. The equivalent ceremony in another jurisdiction may be called a "swearing-in". A monarchical inauguration is similar to what in another jurisdiction may be called a coronation or enthronement.

Other than personal inaugurations, the term can also refer to the official opening or beginning of an institution or structure, for example the inauguration of a new CanadaUnited States border crossing.

The historical source of the word “inauguration” stems from the Latin augur, which refers to the rituals of ancient Roman priests seeking to interpret if it was the will of the gods for a public official to be deemed worthy to assume office. An inauguration site is a ceremonial site that is for someone of a public figure.
