They have been held on Sundays in October since time immemorial. The faithful are informed by means of the bells are turned, and before dawn, people leave the parish singing the praise. With an itinerary every Sunday, the streets of the town are crossed with the singing of the Ave Maria and salves a la virgen, a mass is then held in his honour.

The celebration of the day of the Virgin of the Rosary was instituted by Pope St. Pius V in 1872, his successor Gregory XIII on the 1st of April 1593 extended the festival to all the churches and chapels in which it was erected this Brotherhood and, according to documents found, we can say that it exists as such in Blanca from a date ranging from 1,573 to 1,585.
