But it's not too early to mark your calendar and plan to attend the event held at Hollywood Casino.
Nearly forty people have already registered to put their chili recipes to the test.
All proceeds from the event go to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Bangor Fire Lt. Andrew Emery said "Last couple of years, we've been one of the top fund-raising departments in the northeast at over $30,000 for the year. And last year we topped $6,000 for this event."
Emery said amateur and professional chefs are encouraged to compete in the event.
The event takes place on March 23rd from 6 to 8 p.m.
