Fiskverkendur og fleiri framtakssamir í byggðarlaginu bjóða, með hjálp góðra styrktaraðila, landsmönnum öllum upp á dýrindis fiskrétti, milli kl. 11:00 og 17:00 á laugardeginum Matseðilinn breytist ár frá ári þó ávallt sé boðið upp á ákveðna vinsæla rétti. Öllum réttum fylgja brauð og drykkir eins og hver getur í sig látið. Vináttukeðjan er hugljúf dagskrá á sviði við kirkjuna á föstudeginum þar er tónlist, skemmtun, friðardúfum sleppt og risaknús í lokin til að leggja línurnar fyrir helgina.
