INTRODUCTION

first to offer visitors and locals alike the opportunity to use FaceTime technology to

El Paso Live experienced tremendous success as well, as they partnered with the El

Paso Community Foundation and the UTEP Department of Theatre and Dance to

co-present the triumphant return of the beloved pageant, VIVA! El Paso. The event

was a great success and we look forward to working on next year’s season well in

advance.

The El Paso Downtown Street Fest welcomed more nearly 16,000 patrons and

two of the hottest alt rock and metal acts, Weezer and Rob Zombie. The footprint

of the festival was also extended this year to allow for additional vendors and

entertainment. We also officially reinstated Cohen Stadium

As usual, the 2015 season of El Paso Electric Presents Broadway in El Paso was

incredible, as we hosted a 16-show return run of the blockbuster, WICKED. Our

standard summer series events such as Cool Canyon Nights, Alfresco! Fridays and

our MCAD partnered event Dancing in the City drew record crowds.

This was also full of recognition and awards for Destination El Paso. Visit El Paso’s

aforementioned ad campaign and community partnerships have received awards

and El Paso Live’s venues have been recognized by the top performing arts industry

publications.

Destination El Paso’s momentum is stronger than ever and we are committed

to improving overall perceptions of El Paso. Our respective accomplishments,

combined with a series of new public and private-sector developments have

helped us attract favorable attention and we are especially proud of our efforts to

market El Paso as a viable destination.
