The clavaris are responsible for the festive programme, which includes parades and recreational activities for children such as racing, snacks, and games in the town centre. The liturgical acts include the Calvary Day on the first Friday of September. The image of the virgin is also transferred, and a high mass and a solemn procession take place.
Benimàmet has another patron saint, the protector of animals Saint Anthony the Abbot. All the neighbours take their pets to the blessing.
