I went to the venue and there were no signs, or metal detectors... Or security for that matter. I found out when I arrived that they are run by Salt Lake County, as DaKnife mentioned, so CCW cannot be prohibited. Great venue if anyone is going! The seating is shoulder to shoulder but that was my only complaint. Thanks for your help guys!
Even if they weren't owned by SLC, concealed carry cant be "prohibited", at least not in the sense of making it illegal. They can post signs and set a policy that says firearms aren't welcome, but those signs/policies don't carry the weight of law in Utah, meaning you are free to ignore them as you see fit.

The only time I could see you getting charged with trespassing is when or IF that private property owner finds out you have a gun, asks you to leave the property, and you FAIL TO COMPLY with his wishes. THEN he calls the cops and the cops CAN choose to charge that person with trespassing.
That's my understanding, but again, I am no a lawyer.
