Her security guards didn't feel it was safe for her to go out.
U.S. President Donald Trump is still scheduled to attend, but Melania's absence is sure to fan the flames of social media speculation, since she has not been seen in public for almost a month.
The last time Melania Trump participated in an official event was on 10 May, when the first couple greeted three former U.S. prisoners who had been released from captivity in North Korea.
In a statement from her office after the event, Trump did not mention her time away from the White House's public schedule. Four days later, the White House announced that she had been hospitalized to treat a benign kidney condition.
However, Trump's absence from public view would extend for several more days.

Though it's her first appearance in weeks, the press was not asked to attend out of respect for the families' privacy.
The tweet sparked a conspiracy theory that Mr Trump himself may have written Melania's message, given that "working overtime" is a favorite idiom of the president when he tweets about the press.
The President also talked about the strong economy during the event, the person inside the room said. Everyone I know can't stop talking about where the first lady is.
