Trump sent out invites to his namesake hotel in the capital last week.
"November 3rd will go down in history as the night we won FOUR MORE YEARS. It will be absolutely EPIC, and the only thing that could make it better is having YOU there," the invite read.
The words were accompanied by a photo of Trump and First Lady Melania with the caption "Join us on election night."
It is unclear why the plans have changed and a spokesman for Trump declined to comment to the New York Times about the decision.
Following the news of the election night event, concerns were raised about whether or not it would violate Washington's coronavirus restrictions.
The state says that gatherings must be restricted to 50 people.
On Monday, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said that she was not aware of the party, which the Washingtonian reported is a sold-out event.
The change of plans has come as Joe Biden has stormed ahead in the national polls.
The latest Harvard CAPS-Harris survey found Biden at 54 percent and Trump at 46 percent.
A Hill-Harris poll released on Thursday also found Biden leading Trump by three percentage points in the swing state of Florida.
In Pennsylvania, 51 percent of those surveyed backed Biden and 46 percent supported Trump.
In North Carolina, the margin was closer, with Biden receiving 49 percent and Trump gaining 48 percent support.
