The El Paso International Music Foundation (EPIMF) is a new organization established to empower musicians from El Paso and the neighboring cities of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and Las Cruces, New Mexico. Through education and advocacy, our goal is to promote the local music scene, assist artists to achieve their career goals, and facilitate attainment of affordable health care services.
EPIMF provides music business education workshops and seminars for musicians and music-affiliated professionals to help you work toward turning your love of music into an entrepreneurial venture.
EPIMF provides preventative health seminars, as well as information on existing local healthcare resources, and is working toward securing low- to no-cost healthcare services.
EPIMF works toward building partnerships with businesses, organizations, and city and government entities locally and beyond in order to help raise awareness of the bustling music scene in El Paso.
The El Paso International Music Foundation Celebrates Its First Anniversary
EPIMF will celebrate its first birthday with a night of local music, food, networking and fundraising from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, June 29 at Love Buzz, 3011 Pershing. It’s free, but monetary donations will be accepted at the door.

The nonprofit EPIMF was established in 2018 to empower musicians from El Paso and our neighboring cities, Las Cruces, NM and Ciudad Juarez, MX, via education, advocacy, promoting the local music scene, assisting artists to achieve their career goals, and facilitating the attainment of affordable health care services. This spring, the El Paso Community Foundation welcomed EPIMF as a fiscal sponsor while it works to attain 501(c)(3) status.
EPIMF has hosted a variety of free music business education workshops and community outreach seminars, such as Rockin’ Tykes, a reoccurring educational initiative established to impact children’s overall development through music. In May, EPIMF teamed up with District 1 and the El Paso Streetcar to bring Trolley Tracks to life for Last Thursdays in downtown El Paso. Every last Thursday until October, a different local musician will board the #1511 Streetcar and entertain passengers bringing El Paso’s local and talented musicians closer to the community.
