2. One Person Unites Us


Take part in a conversation with Suzette Quintanilla and Adrienne Houghton at Fiesta de la Flor, presented by CITGO.

Selena continues to fascinate many across the world and her continued popularity is a testament to her enduring legacy.  Selena was not only iconic for an entire culture, she was also able to overcome racial stereotypes, set new standards for her genre of music and open doors for other female musicians.  She was an entrepreneur and pioneer. She was a trendsetter and a visionary.

Fiesta de la Flor was created to celebrate Selena’s legacy and everyone – the bands, the attendees – is at the festival because one person unites us:  Selena.

One Person Unites Us brings together celebrities Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister and CEO of the family production company, Q Productions, and former Cheetah Girl and current daytime co-host on THE REAL, Adrienne Houghton, to have an open discussion about Selena and her continued impact and relevance today. Held in the Selena Auditorium during Fiesta de la Flor on Saturday, April 13 at 2:00 p.m., FDLF attendees can enjoy a fascinating conversation and will have an opportunity to ask questions. There is no added charge, but seating is very limited so grab your seat early! Special seating for VIP Ticket holders one hour before doors open.
