- Real Feria de Ntro. Patron San Isidro Labrador – This fair takes place around 15th of May and during four days there are cultural, musical and religious events. We can find one of the most unique and ancient traditions on the province of Cordoba, “los danzantes de San Isidro” (San Isidro Dancers). This means people in groups of eight and dressed in printed skirts and colorful paper hats dance on several occasions in front of San Isidro during the procession.
- Fiesta de la Alcaparra -‘Caper Festival’. This festival is celebrated on the second weekend of August. The first festival was celebrated in late 90’s and it was an idea of some friends. They wanted to do a kind of tribute to all emigrants who had to leave the town looking for work. Firstly it was just a meeting of friends but now, with the Gastronomic-Cultural Association “Amigos de la Alcaparra” it is also a day to promote the caper.
