“Ein dagur á grynnuni“ – The seafood Festiva

Faroe Islands

The Seafood Festival (“Ein dagur á grynnuni”) aims to showcase Faroese seafood to a young and urban population who might not have had the opportunity to experience the islands’ most important resource up close.

The festival gives young and old the opportunity to try a vast array of different seafood free of charge, such as lobster, mackerel, shrimp and porbeagle or the splendid fish soup, all served by the festival’s many volunteers, which include members of the Faroese parliament.

A daylong fishing competition is arranged for children who wish to catch their own seafood, there is an opportunity to step aboard and experience Norðlýsið, an old Faroese schooner captained by fisherman Birgir Enni, and children and young people are entertained by live performances. Sjósavnið (the national aquarium) is on hand to display various fish types, which children can touch and learn more about.
