Apart from the Item rewards and Darkmoon Decks, there are lots of fun things to do! Here’s a list of some of them:

Minigames: Shoot yourself through the air with a cannon or control a small battle tank and fight against other players
Vendors: The vendors at the Darkmoon Faire are selling some fun things, including special beer!
Fortune Teller: Talk to Sayge and let her tell your fortune! You’ll get a buff, and sometimes even a cool Quest.
Pets: You can aquire the “Unhatched Jubling Egg”, which will hatch into a cute non-combat pet.
Tickets & Decks: Complete repeatable quests to earn Tickets and turn them in for rewards, or gather Darkmoon Cards and complete a Deck to turn it in for an epic trinket!

It’s all about the Tickets!

As mentioned above, there are some repeatable Quests that you can do to earn “Darkmoon Faire Prize Tickets” and reputation. These can be turned in for these rewards at the vendors. However, there is a limit to this, as the amount of Tickets required increases with reputation.

Tier 2: 4 Tickets per quest, until 1100 reputation
Tier 3: 8 Tickets per quest, until 1625 reputation
Tier 4: 12 Tickets per quest, until 2500 reputation

In order to obtain these Tickets, you can turn in many items that can be crafted by Engineers, Leatherworkers and Blacksmiths. Some of them also drop from Beasts. Here’s a list of the Ticket Quests.
