    Smokefarm Art festival

    I am coming from Nevada to visit some friends at this deal next week. We are driving and would love to carry on the way. Yet from the law in WA it seems a festival is off limits. I cant even have it locked in my car. I dont care so much about the time I am there for a night camping but its the trip. I would have no one local to store the gun with. So is smokefarm off limits?

    This is likely one of the most understood restrictions in Washington State, the Smokefarm Art festival does not appear to be a restricted event by definition in our RCW's but is a non-profit and likely private property and can restrict firearms if they so desire.
    If you are securing your firearm in your vehicle, it should not be an issue as well.
