Writer on Demand TM Vol. 4: Grim, Fair e-Tales includes four dark or downbeat stories, two of which are set are fairs or carnivals:

"Artists Only" (approximately 3,500 words) tells the tale of a little girl who goes unwillingly with her brother to the local traveling carnival, tires of the garish distractions, and becomes lost.
