Run silent, run deep.
I'm a recent OC "convert" - still have to CC sometimes to keep the peace at home, as the wife thinks I'm just being obnoxious, etc. I was planning to OC on the 4th of July when we always attend the even at Great Meadow out in Marshall, VA. I just wondered if anyone had any experience there. It is private property as far as I can tell, but they offer no guidance at http://www.greatmeadow.org/. I've thought of giving them a jingle, but they say to not ask any question that you might not the answer for.

Glad to see you posting.
Don't ask, it will force someones hand to find an answer, we probably won't benefit from it.
If you do go and want toOC do sowhileleaving the event, I have done this a few place and have yet to have a negative incident.
If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.
This is the only prohibited items they list on their site.
Prohibited: Pets, Glass of any kind, Grilling or Cooking of any kind, Fireworks, Solitication, Leafletting
Underage drinking (those under 21 consuming alcohol) will NOT be tolerated.
Posting AND open carrying thanks to you!! Yeah, I won't ask. I don't see a prohibition. Looks like you changed your pic there from the cute baby!
Any update from this? Considering going to the VA Scottish Games tomorrow.
http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...t=meadow+event the entire place is posted, but there has never been any problem with OCing at the gun show there (OK, except for having to unload per the promoter's rules).
Also, I could not find the "guest rules" on the current State Fair site, and there were none I could see for the Celtic Festival either.
My approach would be to go and be prepared to leave if necessary. It ought to take them a while to find you.

Guess I'd better see if my voice recorder is charged, too.
OOPS! Great Meadows, Meadow Event Park. All the same to poor eyesight late at night. Add to the confusion the letter site hosts the Richmond area Celtic Games as well, so I got perfused and complected.
Hope your day was a pleasant one, and that you avoided ferret legging.
