Sri Vithappa fair is held in honour of Vithappa deity of the village.
It is observed for three days immediately after Shigi Hunnive. About 7
to 8 thousand people gather at the time. The deity is taken out in a palanquin
in a procession accompanied by about 60 parties of drummers from different
parts of the state. The devotees offer sheep to the deity. The Pujari
sells them and the amount realized is credited to the temple funds. Devotees
bring pure milk and they consider it a good omen if it gets converted
into curds before offering it to the deity. Another feature of this fair
is that a person from Chunchanoor village, picks out some grains in his
palm from some bags kept in the temple. The grain he picks out is then
to be the crop which will have rich yield that year.
