Downtown El Paso is the place to be for two big events during the last part of September

EL PASO, Texas - If it's been awhile since you've explored downtown El Paso, you owe it to yourself to check out two big events.

First, the Downtown Fiesta de las Luces presented by WellMed and United Healthcare returns on Saturday, September 17 from 3 to 11 pm. Produced by the El Paso Downtown Management District, the free event returns with food trucks, a variety of vendors, live music, and the popular Lucha Libre entertainment. Join us on South El Paso Street, between Paisano and Fourth Avenue as we continue with this family friendly street festival. The free festivities will be filled with music by Mariachi Alegre and Frequenzia, and a variety of street vendors. Lucha Frontera, brought to you by Dos Equis and Tecate, returns to provide another epic performance to impress people of all ages. The complement of cultural entertainment to businesses unique to the El Centro Shopping District will provide an experience designed to expose the public to South El Paso Street retailers. The B-17 Bomber Adult Beverage Booth will provide adult refreshments and a delicious collection of food trucks will satiate the tastes of the hungry public.

And for the first time ever, the El Paso Downtown Management District will have a Downtown Restaurant Week, brought to you by the Law Office of Steve Ortega. Restaurant Week is a very popular event in many other cities. El Paso's event is Friday, September 23 to Friday, September 30, 2022, giving you the opportunity to try the culinary delights peppered throughout Downtown.

Some of the participating restaurants include 1700 Steakhouse, Anson 11, Cheezus, Grown Together, Mac's Downtown, Park Tavern, Rockstar Burger Bar and Taft Diaz. More restaurants are being added all the time! Each restaurant has prepared a very special menu item for Restaurant Week.
