Governor-elect Bill Lee's inaugural ceremony will be shifting locations due to expected weather conditions Saturday.

Though the event is historically held outdoors on the Legislative Plaza, weather has pushed it to The War Memorial Auditorium, located at 306 6th Avenue North.

“While the weather doesn’t seem to be cooperating, we are looking forward to a fantastic inaugural weekend,” said Lee. “I encourage Tennesseans to be safe, but still also feel welcome to attend this historic event. We are making every effort to accommodate overflow space for those wishing to attend because I want to ensure no Tennessean is turned away who wants to join us for the festivities.”

The event is free and open to the public and slated to start at 11 a.m. More inaugural events information can be found here.
