The Tourism Challenge returns! This fun program is a seasonal opportunity for staff and volunteers actively working in the tourism industry to explore local attractions and discover the unique neighbourhoods that make Vancouver the amazing place it is. The Tourism Challenge will run from April 20 – May 31, 2024.

This year, we invite Tourism Challenge participants to explore our neighbourhood and complete the following scavenger hunt.

To earn your West End stamps, complete 2 of the following challenges:

  • Visit Denman Street and look up. Can you name three of the illustrations on our blue banners?
  • Check out our new ground mural ‘Crossing Paths’ at 1800 Davie Plaza (Davie & Denman intersection), what is the name of this mural’s artist?
  • What do the colours of the eight coloured rainbow flag represent? Hint – you’ll find the answer to this question at the Jim Deva Plaza!

Next, make your way to one of our partnering businesses and give them your answers to receive your stamps!

We have three stamp locations to choose from:

  • Peaked Pies – 975 Denman Street. Open daily from 8:00am to 9:00pm.
  • The Quick Nickel – 1736 Davie Street. Open Monday to Thursday from 10:00am to 6:00pm, Friday and Saturday from 10:00am to 7:00pm, Sunday from 11:00pm to 6:00pm.
  • Al Chile – 1340 Davie Street. Open daily from 12:30-9:30pm.
