Yaletown is proud to welcome 20,000 tourism professionals from April 22nd to June 2nd in the 17th annual Tourism Challenge, brought to you by the Vancouver Attractions Group, Tourism Vancouver and the Vancouver Hotel Association.

The Tourism Challenge is an exciting city wide promotion that encourages tourism industry workers to enrich their personal knowledge of our wonderful city. Yaletown is a featured neighbourhood in the challenge and we will be inviting participants to explore the area with a unique scavenger hunt. Be ready for tourism industry workers to be exploring our neighbourhood!

Receive your stamps by completing the scavenger hunt, and finding the secret phrase. Solve the riddles below to find the words that make up the phrase. When you find the words – please visit us at Engine 374 Pavilion (also a stamping location for West Coast Railway Heritage Park) at the corner of Davie St. and Pacific Blvd., 7 days a week, 10am – 4pm to receive your TWO Yaletown stamps.



Word #1: Visit one of these 2 locations

Find the first word at Yaletown’s newest cafe serving premium, single-origin Chinese teas! Enjoy a classic green tea or try 24 varieties of tea and leave happy.


Upon stepping into this Yaletown shop you’ll be welcomed by walls lined with plastic bins filled with colourful Swedish Fish, chewy gummies, and decadent caramels. You’ll find the first word and get a sugar rush in this minimalist Yaletown shop!

Word #2: The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) stretches from the coast to coast of Canada and was created to physically unite our country. You’ll find the second word near the first passenger train that entered Vancouver, at a popular pavilion from Expo 86.

While exploring Yaletown don’t forget to use the hashtags #DiscoverYourHood #iHeartYaletown when sharing your photos.
