The 11th Season of Chill on the Hill is here! Starting June 2nd until September 1st, we will have 14 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 many ways we do that. 

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 if you choose, have a local presence at the events. Your support goes toward band fees, a solid sound system, and promotion in a variety of forms
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.  We have sponsorship levels at a variety of prices, but we can also customize a package that make sense for you and your business.
