As Phil said for the UK, in Australia they are Showgrounds, with just about
every country town having their own.

As per your description, the show is usually only on for one weekend a
year, but there are permanent buildings & facilities on site, & the area
is  frequently used as a caravan / tourist park for the rest of the year.

The few I've just checked are currently tagged with a mixture of either
leisure=park or landuse=recreation_ground. Personally, of the two options,
I'd prefer rec. ground, which I notice a few of your samples were also
tagged as.
