There’s a new taco sheriff at this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. The festival’s famous taco cannon will be stuffed with tacos from El Chilito. The move represents a changing of the guard, as Tamale House East was the taco of choice last year.

Fun Fun Fun Fest will announce the food, retail, and nonprofit vendors for the annual fest tomorrow at the 1623 E. Seventh St. location of El Chilito tomorrow at noon. To celebrate the announcement, El Chilito will give away one free taco to the first 100 people at the noon event. Something tells me the line will start well before noon. Follow @funfunfunfest on Twitter for more information.

Fun Fun Fun Fest takes place November 6-8 at Auditorium Shores.

As for the change in tacos, a FFF rep responded: “We like to mix things up every now and then with our festival vendors. El Chile group is doing exciting things with Mexican cuisine in Austin, and we frequent El Chilito often, so it was a natural fit. We’re excited to be working with them this year.”
