The Candy Days festival in Husavik is an annual festival taking place the last weekend in July. The town is divided into three districts: Pink, Orange, and Green, and people decorate their houses, businesses, light posts and themselves in their colors. The population more than doubles during the festival, as many people who have moved away pick this weekend to come back for a visit, and the whole town is buzzing with life. During Mærudagar, there is something for everyone: art exhibitions, open-air theatre performances for kids of all ages, a parade, a golf tournament, a market and a small carnival at the harbor. The shops & restaurants are open longer, and there is live music all over town. In the evening, the port fills with people enjoying the music and meeting old and new friends.
