It's not a weapon, and it's certainly not a vuvuzela ( they banned that a couple of years ago ) so I don't see why you couldn't. Two years ago there was a guy with a Tuba and he played it.

So far as to my knowledge, as long as you're not being disruptive as you are playing your violin - impeding traffic, increasing noise level, purposely goading others by playing after they've asked you to stop or play elsewhere - you can play it at the convention. However, it is highly advised that you limit your playing to outside the convention center and not within its walls.

As an aside, unless you are cosplaying and will be using it for brief amounts of time as a prop for photoshoots, I would strongly suggest you leave the violin at home. Musical instruments - violins especially but I'm sure you're aware of that - are expensive so if anything (heaven forbid) should happen to it, you'll be SOL.

That sounds hilariously awesome. I hope that he was playing the bagpipe funeral march as he walked.
