The annual festival in honour or the patron saint of Periana, St Isidro, takes place around the middle of May and normally lasts for four days. It always has plenty of entertainment for all ages and features some well known Spanish musical performers. The village will be very much alive during the days and nights of the festival with plenty to see and do. Typically the villagers come out en masse late at night accompanied by their children (who normally sleep during the day.) Highly recommended to those with strong constitutions!
