County, state and federal civilian concealed-carry permits are not recognized or valid on Fort Carson. All weapons brought onto the installation must be registered with the provost marshal's office at building 2700 in accordance with U.S. Army and Fort Carson regulations and policy. Only law enforcement personnel in the performance of official duties may possess a concealed weapon on Fort Carson.

Despite the Colorado amendment legalizing recreational marijuana, use or possession of marijuana on a federal installation is a violation of federal law; and therefore, is not allowed at this event.
