    Has the issue of CC and OC at the State Fair been resolved?

    This was discussed about two years ago on this forum. Conclusion was that even though they do not have the right to prohibit CC, but likely (but not certainly) have the right to prohibit OC, they are prohibiting CC anyway.

    Here is the CO law concerning CC with permit:

    Does anyone know where things stand now?


    Edit: Here's the thread from 2012:

    The signs shown in the previous thread specifically say "State Property". Using that, and the current wording of the law, it seems it's allowed unless they have security personnel and permanently fixed electronic devices for screening for weapons:
