2018 marks the 18th Annual Tourism Challenge, which brings 20,000 tourism professionals and volunteers together from April 22 to June 2, 2017. This event is proudly supported by the Vancouver Attractions Group, Tourism Vancouver, and the Vancouver Hotel Association.

The West End is participating in the Tourism Challenge as part of the Discover Your Neighbourhood program for the 4th year, and is proud and excited to welcome everyone to our amazing neighbourhood.

We invite Tourism Challenge participants to explore our “Three Great Streets” – Davie Street, Denman Street, and Robson Street. Our neighbourhood’s close proximity to English Bay, Stanley Park, and the downtown core is matched with a diverse and colourful community of amazing people.
