The Cross Cultural Strathcona Walking Tour celebrates the rich layered history of Vancouver’s downtown east side neighbourhoods: Hogan’s Alley, Jewish Strathcona, Japantown (Powell Street) and Chinatown. The guided walking tour builds awareness of the contributions of early immigrant communities then and now, in celebration of Vancouver Asian Heritage Month and Canada’s Jewish Heritage Month, both of which fall during the month of May.

The walking tour theme is "education" and offers highlights from each of these communities.

The Cross Cultural Strathcona Walking Tour project is a coordinated effort by the following participating organizations: Association of United Ukrainian Canadians; Benny Foods Italian Market; Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden; Musqueam Elder Larry Grant (Hon. Advisor to PCHC-MoM & VAHMS); Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens Association; Heritage Vancouver Society; Hogan's Alley Society; Jewish Independent; Jewish Museum & Archives of BC; Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre; Pacific Canada Heritage Centre Museum of Migration; Vancouver Asian Heritage Month Society’s explorASIAN; Vancouver Heritage Foundation; Vancouver Japanese Language School and Japanese Hall (administrative host organization); Vancouver School Board; Vancouver School Board Archives and Heritage Committee; Wongs’ Benevolent Association and Youth Collaborative for Chinatown.
