Belcarra Seasonglass Green Tea Festival


Our 5th Annual Belcarra Tea Festival (2020), at Camp Howdy, was scheduled to be held in June and July this year. However, due to the COVID-19 restrictions on large gatherings, we will be postponing the Belcarra Tea Festival to a date which will be determined and announced at a later date.

Please check back for further announcements. You may also request to be added to our email list for updates.

Check Out What 2019 Had to Offer

In June 2016, we held our very first tea festival in Belcarra, British Columbia, called Belcarra Tea Festival at Camp Howdy. For the following three years, we had the pleasure of hosting over 2,000 guests at our annual tea festivals where we presented premium organic green tea and an array of foods, drinks and products made from green tea.

This July, we will be holding our fourth annual festival under a new name: Belcarra Seasonglass Green Tea Festival at Camp Howdy. We will be introducing a diverse line of organic green teas by Seasonglass Green Teas, green tea-based foods and products as well as interactive workshops.

While many people have heard of the health benefits of green tea the steps in brewing loose-leaf green tea may seem complicated or laborious to those who are unfamiliar with the process. At this year’s Belcarra Seasonglass Green tea Festival at Camp Howdy, we hope to simplify and share how green tea can be easily brewed and incorporated into our daily lives.
