Garden Fetes

Is this an icon?

or

Garden Fetes

Because Garden Fetes only happen in England, with their simple stalls and competitions, like Whose cake, jam, embroidery is best, or Whose carrots are the best, etc. - and you can meet all the quintessentially English people at them - eccentrics, 'Colonel Blimps', WI Ladies, Vicars, etc. This is a typically English form of entertainment which embodies all our characteristics.

I've been to numerous garden fetes - all of them in Scotland!

I believe rice, peas and jerk chicken is an Icon of England.
