As with all murugan temples Skandasashti is celebrated in great splendor in the monsoon month of Aippasi. Karthigai Deepam is celebrated for 10 days and the annual Bhramotsavam is celebrated for 14 days in the month of Panguni.

Other festivals celebrated here include VaigasiVisakam and the Theppa Utsavam(float festival) in the month of Thai. The Karthigai Asterism is celebrated each month.

The festival image of Vishnu is taken in procession to the city of Madurai to participate in the Divine royal Wedding of Meenakshi and Sundareswarar during the Chittirai Thiruvizha. The presiding deity of Thiruparamkunram (Subramanyar) leads this procession.

The entire space in and around Madurai wears grand festival look during this occasion. Yet in another celebration at the Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple involving enactment of episodes from the Thiruvilaiyadal puranam(pittukku mann sumandu aruliya vizha) Subramanyar from Thiruparamkunram participates.
