'Patio Festival Cordoba' as a google will do it, if no one else responds. Also 'Cruces de Mayo' runs part parallel in May. Sorry, I have not been. From memory there will be forty to sixty patios and perhaps twenty decorated crosses outside churches.

The old centre of Cordoba is not that extensive really. You can do the Mequita, jewish quarter and all the old part/patios etc easily in a day, depending how much time you spend in the Mezquita, and still get lunch for 2 or 3 pm. Best to get a map from the tourist office if you dont have avguide book. Downriver from Puente Romano (entrance to old town) there is a nice new car park on the intersection if you have a car. But a good sprinkiling of small hotels there anyway Beware - dont buy any heather off gitanas and also note that the weather can be very, very hot along the Guadalquivir valley, even in May.

Every May there is a patio contest (concurso municipal de patios de Córdoba). This year it is from May 8 to May 19. If you can read Spanish:
In case you can check my tip about patios contest:

I was a few years ago, and I got a small map where I could see the location of all the patios taking part in the contest.
