The main prasadam of this temple is their "appam". Any one offering prayers can get this appam from the counters.  The main festival of the temple is Moodappa Seva, which is covering the idol with appam made of ghee and rice with a special preparation, which requires a huge expense hence it is celebrated periodically. Moodappa seva was last celebrated in 1992. Annual festival is celebrated in the month of March and April.
During Rainy season the river Madhuvahini overflows and the water gets into temple campus ,so its not best to visit the temple during rainy seasons.
