During the initial surge of the pandemic, Fiesta San Antonio was postponed until November. However, due to the recent spike of cases, the decision has been made to go ahead and cancel 2020 Fiesta altogether.

“The highest priority is the health and safety of our Fiesta guests and volunteers. We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic is not likely to subside sufficiently at any time in 2020,” event organizers said in a written statement.

2021 Fiesta will take place April 15-21.

This is the first time the event has been canceled since World War II.
