Visit El Paso

Take a walk over to San Jacinto Plaza for a great photo op!

Visit El Paso is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new display, Love Letters to El Paso, to recognize various groups and special occasions. The display, which was unveiled on Monday, July 27, 2020, sits in San Jacinto Plaza and will be displayed through September.

Our desire was to do something for the city that was a symbol of hope, gratitude, and community pride. In such an unclear time, we thought there was no better way to unveil this other than to honor our COVID Heroes. Healthcare, law enforcement, education, hospitality, truck drivers, small business owners, chefs, servers. The list goes on and on. Each sector is such an essential part of our community and reminds us each day how El Paso continues to shine bright. #iloveeptx #loveletters Downtown El Paso DMD City of El Paso, Texas - Municipal Government El Paso Parks and Recreation

THE EL PASO FILM COMMISSION

Since 1974, our passion for film and the El Paso community has encouraged us to provide quality service and assistance to local and outside film production. We pride ourselves on our long-standing and knowledgeable staff, experienced local crew, and film-friendly community.

El Paso offers gorgeous, natural scenery. From beautiful desert landscapes, to majestic mountain ranges or wide-open spaces; the versatility of the city’s natural attributes coupled with our unique border-culture, truly sets El Paso apart and provides a place and experience like no other.

Location Services:

We offer location research and can assist in initial scouting of the area and assist in obtaining permission to film. We have also compiled an extensive collection of location photographs many of which are available in the locations gallery of our film manual or can be sent upon request.
