The major festival at the temple is Pongala, which takes place during the month of Vrischikam (November/December). This is when the glory of the goddess is at its peak, and lakhs of women devotees gather around the temple, some arriving as early as one week before the function. The temple premises are overcrowded, and the devotees arrange places for offering the Pongala on both sides of the main streets. The queue usually extends to a surprising length of 20 km.

Another festival celebrated at the temple is Panthrandu Noyampu, which is a type of fasting and prayer that qualifies the devotee for eternal blessings of Chakkulathamma. This fasting starts every year from the first day of the Malayalam month of Dhanu until the twelfth.

Other festivals celebrated at the temple include Naree pooja and Thrikkarthaka.
