What Kind of Resume for a Job Fair?

After working for myself for several years (while taking care of a parent) I'm about to enter the job market again. I'm going to a very large job fair next week, and I'm suppose to bring a resume. I'm not sure how that works. Help?

It's a job fair for entry level jobs across many different employers. So there's going to be restaurants hiring, hospitals hiring, business offices hiring, etc. Hiring will supposedly be done on the spot. You're also suppose to be bring a resume.
It's been years since I've made a resume, and I'm a little bit lost at how to make one for this situation. In my past, I found a job I wanted and made a resume and cover letter geared to that job. But with so many different jobs at the fair, how can I do this? I have experience in a lot of areas, and if I knew what I wanted to do, I would gear my resume in that direction. But at this point, I'll take anything. And I'm not sure how to create a resume/cover letter that will help me accomplish that.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. I need a job.
