It's déjà vu all over again.

After 2020's Fiesta celebrations were postponed to the fall — then cancelled — due to the coronavirus pandemic, San Antonians had high hopes pinned on a return to form in April of 2021.

Now, with cases still soaring in San Antonio, and Texas' vaccine rollout moving at a less-than-optimal pace, those hopes have already been dashed.

On Monday morning, the Fiesta Commission confirmed to KABB Fox 29 that Fiesta has officially been postponed to June 17-27, 2021. According to a tweet by KABB anchor Ernie Zuniga, a formal announcement about the postponement is expected soon.


The delay of the 10-day citywide party comes on the heels of the cancellations of St. Mary's University's Fiesta Oyster Bake and the Barbacoa and Big Red Festival.
