Legal Definition: Public Event and Private Event



Hello,
I am looking as to what the legal definition of a PUBLIC EVENT would
be as well as a PRIVATE EVENT.

To my minds thinking a private event, would be limited to a set number
of people who are invited only - whereas the general public would not
be admitted.

a public event would be where anyone may participate in the said event.


Where would i go to research possible legal definitions further?

Thanks!
