Korivi Festival at
starts from Mahashivratri
and goes on to the Telugu New Year day, Ugadi
. The deity of Korivi, Veeranna or Veerabhadra, is especially sought after by the childless. Women, after observing certain austerities, travel to Korivi to pray, to conceive or in thanksgiving for the child they have already conceived.
Korivi Festival is popular amongst the rural folk of Telengana, especially the Lambada tribals for whom pilgrimage to Korivi is a tradition. The forty days of the festival find Korivi festooned with makeshift tents for the pilgrims and stalls selling various commodities. The Lambadas hold weekly markets where anything from forest produce to livestock is traded.
