Every year, on the fourth Sunday of June Our Lady, Santa Maria del Monte is celebrated. The festivities begin a week earlier with a procession, accompanied by the band, which carries the statue from the shrine to the town where it will be on display for a week. The procession is repeated a week later to return the statue to the shrine.

The sanctuary is located about 4 kilometers from the village and the procession ends with a cookout and a weekend of activities and fireworks.
