According to the official Tejano Explosion website, organizers will not throw the unofficial Fiesta musical event this year.

“Important Announcement! We were not able to find a suitable venue for this year," reads a message on the site's front page. "However, we are hoping to find one for 2020. Thank you for your continued support.”

For 25 years, Tejano Explosion has presented a stacked bill of Tejano performers, including both up-and-comers and legendary names like Little Joe y la Familia and Grupo Mazz. 

The event took place at North Frio and West Houston streets for years before being forced to move to a site opposite Market Square after Via purchased the original property. Now, organizers said they were informed the new site has also been sold.

This is the second Fiesta-themed musical event that appears to have buckled recently. Alamo City Music Hall, home to the rock-focused Siesta Fest for the last several years, recently announced it's shutting its doors.
