The date is January 20 unless that date falls on Sunday, in which case, the public inauguration ceremony is held the next day, but President is sworn in at noon on Sunday in a private ceremony.

January 20, 2009

as the 20th amendment states- January 20th at noon.

It's the day when the soon to be president takes an oath promising to do what is right for the will of the people and the country after the oath he/she becomes president.

Which is January 20th. The same date every year.

the US Constitution prescribes it take place on the 20th of January regardless of what day of the week it falls on.
January 20th
