'Festival' is probably the best English word here, although it would also be fine to use the Spanish word. You are right that 'fair' doesn't have the right associations.

I would suggest keeping the Spanish name Seville Feria, and refer to it as or fiesta festival. In the UK a fair refers to a show such as with side shows, roller coasters etc or a sale of local goods or an indoor event. Fiesta is closer to what you want really, or festival in this case.

When referring to Seville "feria," one may call it a "fair," which covers the meaning. Other words are: "Carnival" (carnaval) or "party" (fiesta), but "fair" is the closest. "Festival," in America, is usually reserved to expositions of the arts (music, painting, theater, etc.).
