In 2014 – 2017 the third Wednesday in June was proclaimed by the City of Tacoma Mayor as Walk Tacoma Day.  Since 2018, the month of June has been proclaimed Walk Tacoma Month.

Scavenger Hunt 2020

If you love healthy competition, the chance to win cool prizes, and exploring downtown Tacoma, the Walk Tacoma Scavenger Hunt is for you! Taking place August 5 – 12, the free challenge will send you on a journey through downtown to decode clues, do activities, and visit locations on foot, on bike, or by bus and Link. All participants are required to wear a face covering and stay socially distanced during their hunt.

Registration for this year’s hunt is now closed. Participants will receive details and clue sheets via email at noon on Wednesday, August 5th. On the hunt, participants complete as many activities and questions as possible. Results are due by noon on Wednesday, August 12th by submitting your answers through a survey link.

In-person registration will be available at the Downtown On the Go Shop (on S. 11th between Pacific Ave. and Commerce St.) on Monday, August 3rd from 4pm-6pm. There will also be an option to drop off answers in-person and collect prizes at the DOTG Shop on August 12th from 11am-1pm and 4pm-6pm. Appropriate social distancing and wearing of face coverings will be required.

Build a team of colleagues from work, grab a pal or two, work individually, or bring the family to learn more about active transportation, explore great Tacoma locations, and get out into the community. All ages are welcome. Scavenger hunters can work individually or create a team of up to five members.

Prizes will be awarded to teams and individuals who achieve certain point levels based on responses and activities. Earn all points possible in the hunt and automatically be entered to win a Grand Prize package including special gifts from Spaceworks Tacoma, Pierce Transit and Commencement Bank. Participants have the opportunity to donate their prizes to a local charity! Downtown On the Go has confirmed YWCA and Nativity House as the two organizations that will receive donated prizes.

Engage with Downtown On the Go social media during the hunt by using unique hashtags, sharing photos and checking in at specific locations. Don’t forget to bring your smartphone!
