Just when you thought there couldn’t be more Selena in your life (does anyone ever think that?), the Fiesta de la Flor returns for its fourth year of celebrating the life and legacy of the Queen of Tejano.
Held in Corpus Christi (Quintanilla's hometown, duh) at Bayfront Park, the two-day music festival, set for April 13 & 14, will feature Becky G, The Mavericks, Los Palominos, Isabel Marie, Jenny and the Mexicats, Superónicos, Elida Reyna, LA 45, Sunny Sauceda, Jonmikael Mrez, and Hometown Boys this year.
The celebration also features a discussion with Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister, Fiesta de la Flor headliner Becky G and YouTube star Desi Perkins to have an open discussion about Selena and her continued impact and relevance today. Attendees will also be able to take advantage of an artisan market, food trucks, a viewing of Selena’s final performance The Last Concert from the Astrodome, and an opportunity to take a selfie with Madame Tussauds Selena Wax Figure.
Tickets ($15-$50) can be purchased here. For more information, visit fiestadelaflor.com.
