Tejano Music AwardsFan Fair 2021 has been postponed by the Texas Talent Musicians Association (TTMA) over concerns of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“Due to COVID-19, we have postponed Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair until further notice,” saidBino Gaona, Event Director for TTMA, in a statement toTejano Nation. “We want to make sure we have the state and city of San Antonio approval as well. Plus, we want to make sure priority one is the fans’ and artists’ health. Especially with the second strand of COVID is suppose to be even worse.”
The annual four-day event, usually scheduled in mid-March, draws over 100,000 Tejano music fans and over a hundred bands to historic Market Square in San Antonio, Texas each year.
The event in 2020 wascanceled after just one daywhen San Antonio city officials declared a health emergency that prohibited large gatherings of over 500 for seven days.
No date was given for the rescheduled Tejano Music Awards Fan Fair butFiesta San Antoniowaspostponed until Juneby organizers earlier this week. Other San Antonio events includingFiesta Oyster Bake, theFiesta Flambeau Parade, and theBattle Of Flowers Paradewere canceled altogether hoping to return in 2022.
