The Club Deportivo Oberena started up in 1940 with the aim of creating healthy activities through sport and also with an eye on folklore. Santos Beguiristáin, a priest was the man behind the idea and his first members came from the youth of the city parishes of San Saturnino, San Nicholas, San Agustin, San Lorenzo and San Francisco Javier. The green insignia came from the Catholic Action organization, and the rest of the uniform is white and black. On the 20th of January, 1941, the San Fermin Peña was founded alongside that of the football, mountaineering, handball, cycling and swimming. There first public appearance was made on the 7th of July, 1941 during the fiestas. The following year the dance groups, and traditional whistle (txistu) and choir groups were formed . They used the Labrit handball facilities as there headquarters until 1983.
The Oberena Peña has close ties with the world of bullfighting. For example, the bullfighter, Antonio Ordoñez, kept up a close relation with the members of this Peña, and he was named as an honorary member. Ordoñiz, in his time, had a close friendship with the president of that period, Fernando Salcedo Cilveti and he passed on his affinity for the club to his grandchildren. For that reason, members of this Peña club have helped out bullfighters like Francisco Rivera Ordoñez when they wished to participate in the running of the bulls. In 1990, when the club celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, some bullfighting workshops were held with breeders such as Jaime Pablo Romero and Victorino Martín (the father).
For the San Fermin Fiestas, the Oberena Peña have a social premises at 31, San Lorenzo Street, in what used to be the old Lantzale restaurant. In addition, during Sanfermin fiestas over these last few years is the annual performance of Patxi Larumbe with the piece from Antonio Molino, "Soy minero". This usually takes place at about two o'clock in the morning and after the performance he is thrown up in the air by his fellow members.
