The Cortegana Fair is dedicated to its patron saint, Our Lady of Piety, who is carried in procession through the streets of the town on the 8th September with devotion and passion. During the following days we hold our Fair,  which had its origins in an agricultural fair at the time before the pigs were taken up to the oak groves to feed on the acorns. Nowadays it is concentrated on festive activities such as  horse riding, bullfighting, reveille by drummers and flautists, a concert by the Municipal Band, fireworks, meeting friends and fun in the marquees set up by the different clubs,  stalls and fairground rides for the youngsters.
