A "fair" in this case is an outdoor event that takes place temporarily, usually for a few weeks during the summer. Fairs often consist of amusement park rides, games that can be played to win prizes, food, and other entertainment activities. In the United States, fairs are usually a place where farmers enter their animals and crops in shows and competitions to win various prizes. Ex: The fair is in town, let's go and ride some rollercoasters!
