The patronal feast of San Rocco in Butera takes place on August 16th. On the morning of the feast day, the procession takes place that accompanies the simulacrum of the patron saint from the Sanctuary to the Mother Church, in which the barefoot devotees participate. During the procession the ancient rite of undressing of the children takes place and they are raised towards the simulacrum so that they are placed under the special protection of San Rocco. In the evening a second procession takes place which will bring the sacred effigy of the Saint back to its sanctuary.
On the occasion of the celebrations of the Patron Saint of Butera, parades of festively caparisoned horses are organized and the Sagra del Pane, del pesto and some basil.
