    Kitsap county fair, OC friendly?

    If I got my dates correct the Kitsap county fair runs though this weekend. I have not been in many years way before I was able to carry a gun. I have those days off this week and was thinking about stopping by and attending the John Michal Montgomery concert. I do not know who owns the land and what their policies may be. Has anyone ever open carried there before? Any problems or information I need to know? Most likely I will be OC on my motorcycle so its all or nothing I will have no vehicle to secure my gun into if need be

    The concert part of the fair might fall under the "music festival" prohibition, but I haven't read that RCW in a while and I don't know the details of the Kitsap Fair.

    I carry a spare tire, in case I have a flat. I carry life insurance, in case I die. I carry a gun, in case I need it.

    Contact information all leads to a county phone number, physical address and email address. The fair ordinances link leads to the kitsap county code [link].

    As far as I can tell its a county run fair and subject to state preemption.
