    I'm planning on attending a concert later this summer. I've looked over the King County Parks website and can find no mention of it being prohibited (and I shouldn't be able to!)

    I was also curious if anyone had attended a summer concert while OCing in the past.

    King County Parks @ Mary Moor is here:

    If the concert meets the legal definition of outdoor music festival then don't carry while at the concert.

    edited because I wasn't paying attention...

    SV_L, not sure of the point of your post but it appears to confirm the original post that this is not a music festival.

    That being said I don't know that I would want to OC at a concert just because there are too many people pressed together. I wouldn't be able to be that vigilant regarding my firearm. I think I would go with CC and a light shirt to cover the firearm instead.

    It appears to me that it would not fall under the RCW unless the specific concert is five hours long or more. Going off thier line-up it would appear that only 4 or so would probably meet the definition.

    I was thinking about hitting one or two of the concerts at Chateau St Michelle Winery in Woodinville and looking over their website I see no rules about firearms. If they ask you to leave or won't let you in when you arrive at the concert do they have to refund your ticket purchase price if they have not prohibited firearms in the rules that they have posted in advance? I would hate to pony up $$$ for a concert and then get screwed out of my concert AND my $$$.

    Most establishements will allow refunds if you are asked to leave or denied entrance for somethig that is not in violation of thier policies. I know it sounds wierd to be asked to leave for something that is not a policy but that is were most of them typically stand.

    Personally I wouldn't spend the money until I was sure one way or the other.

    I went to a concert there yesterday and noticed a sign with all the typical "not allowed" items. Outside alcohol, pets, etc. Also on that list was firearms. But the "no cameras" sign was taped on top of this sign and covering most of the writing!! They really didn't want cameras in there! Had to take my girlfriends back to the car. Depending on the concert, i wouldn't open carry if it was allowed. Alot of rowdy drunk people acting crazy in tight quarters.
