No, but isn't it a bit early to think of cancelling?  It does not happen until October or November.

It takes months of planning, some of which involves non-refundable expenses. People involved in a myriad of ways have to be signed up. They may be depending on income that will come from the event. They need to know soonest if it will not be coming. I am guessing they have reached the point of needing to either start putting out money or canceling.

Pasadena just canceled the Rose Bowl Parade first time since the 1800's. Things happen and it takes so long to plan and prepare, they canceled. Maybe a nice video of past San Andres fiesta may be necessary.

Féria definitely cancelled and several weeks ago.  

Correct.  Big issue in that decision aside from drastically reduced air travel and visitation here is that volunteer hosts were hard to come by because many did not want to risk exposure to CV from other parts of the country.

According  to one news report I read earlier today ALL festivals and festivities in the municipality have been canceled for the remainder of the year. This includes  the annual  Grita de Dolores and the usual activities for Mexican Independence Day.

It is expected that the (first) peak of the virus will be hitting us in September and lasting through November. Not surprisingly, this news article was in agreement with other estimates that strongly suggest nothing even approaching pre-virus "normalcy" can be expected for close to four years.

If you haven't already done so, buckle your seat belt, we're in for a helluva bumpy ride.
