I've seen the answer in at least a couple of threads, but it looks that they've been purged. Is it ok to CCW in Fair Park? No metal detectors or pat downs?

Do you mean during the State Fair or a specific event? If itís just to visit one of the Museums or the Music Hall, then you're fine.
There are a few old non-30.06 compliant signs around at the gates and a few of the buildings, but nothing to stop a CHLíer in the peaceful pursuit of concealability.

Just avoid the businesses in the area, ESPECIALLY the filling stations, they are just crime scenes-in-waiting. Plenty of places to eat and get what you need just a mile or so up the road in Deep Ellum (daylight hours only), or if itís after darkÖÖ.ahhh, Plano, McKinney anywhere far North of this dignity-challenged area.

If you have any concerns about a specific location in the Fair Park Campus, let me know and Iíll check it out for you.

I have carried during the State fair. I would think that any other time would be ok as well.

The Fort Worth Stock Show is posted 30.06. Go figure.

Fair Park is owned by the City of Dallas, they cannot restrict carry per Texas Law. It is a pain to carry during the Fair becuase they take down you license information and make you wait for a supervisor, however it is definately possible as my wife and I have done it multiple times.
