Warm beer, welly-throwing and cake-stall or a vibrant tradition that keeps the village alive?

Nowt wrong with Morris dancing... Some villages alternate the fête with a Summer street party thingy - oompah band, continental café, bouncy castle and beer (and wine) tent. As ever, having the sun shine helps a lot.

Agree. Both my son and grandson dance Morris, though grandson's priorities are slightly modifying just lately. Son is even grappling with a squeezebox and progressing well. We have been educated into visiting many lovely Devon pubs, for their Friday night dance, that we would otherwise never have visited. So for us, makes a pleasant Friday evening out.
