BAY VIEW NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION


The summer of 2018 brings us to the 14th Season of Chill on the Hill! Starting June 5th until August 28th, we will have 13 weeks of neighbors and friends enjoying a music-filled Hill!  The Bay View Neighborhood Association’s Mission is “Connecting Neighbors for a Better Bay View,” and Chill on the Hill is one of the primary ways we do that. And we make sure it's fun while we're at it!

This year, we will have an extra special evening of Chill on the Hill as we host the 50th Anniversary Kids from Wisconsin on our stage!  Enjoy the show on Friday, June 22nd, 2018!

The Humboldt Park Band Chalet is home to Chill on the Hill, a natural amphitheater that offers great acoustics and comfortable space for guests to sit back and soak in the surroundings. The Bay View Neighborhood Association, in partnership with Milwaukee County Parks, is proud to bring you Chill on the Hill!  

As a sponsor, you will have multiple opportunities to repeatedly reach a local market and have a local presence at the events. Your support goes toward band fees, a super amazing sound system, and promotion to ensure success. With a variety of sponsorship packages, there are affordable options available for businesses and groups. Please consider being a part of this wonderful concert series, and come out and join us for The Bay View Neighborhood Association’s Chill on the Hill!

All Sponsorship Levels include a one year business membership in the Bay View Neighborhood Association, and an opportunity to participate in the BVNA Discount Card.  Your name will be mentioned on stage multiple times, and the higher your sponsorship, the more you are acknowledged.  Each level comes with unique perks for sponsors, and we can design a program that gives you the most of what you want from Chill, whether that is backstage access, band meet and greets, reserved picnic area, or something that makes you happy!  If you have a different idea for a sponsor level, just let us know.  We'll figure it out!  All payments and contracts are due no later than April 25th, 2018. Please feel free to contact the BVNA Sponsorship Chair, Patty Pritchard Thompson, at bvnasponsorships@gmail.com or 414-403-8003.
