Every year,during the months of Chaitra, Shravan, Pausha and Magha, five days between the twelfth day of the first half and the first day of the second fortnight are festival periods. The first ten days, especially the tenth, Vijayadashami, of Ashvain and the first six days of the month of Margashirsha,are alsoceremonial occasions.Somavati amavasya that is a no-moon day that falls on Monday also is an occasion for a large fair.

The fullmoon day of Chaitra commemorates the day when Khandoba assumed his avatara for the annihilation of Mani and Malla. The full-moon day of Shravan is the day on which Malhari that is, Khandoba and Balai were married. Khandoba and Mhalsa were married on the full-moon day of Pausha at Pal in the Satara district.
