Chill on the Hill, presented by the Bay View Neighborhood Association in partnership with Milwaukee County Parks, will be delaying the season to hopefully start on July 21st, 2020. This highly popular Tuesday night concert series normally runs from early June until late August and entertains neighbors with crowds up to 3000 people featuring local and original music.
The BVNA is working closely with Milwaukee County to formulate a plan to host Chill on the Hill in a safe and friendly manner. Currently, the State of Wisconsin Badger Bounce Back plan includes large gatherings as part of Phase 3, and will be closely following that guidance.
“Chill has a great line-up planned for the 2020 season, and we will do what we can to host our shows once we get the go-ahead,” said Patty Thompson, Chill on the Hill Executive Director. “We know events like Chill will be needed more than ever, but we will be patient and flexible to make sure we can have these events in a safe and secure way.”
The BVNA will continue to evaluate the July 21st start date in mid-June and will adjust as necessary. Plans are also being considered to extend the season into September. Please watch for more information in the near future.
Bay View is home to Humboldt Park, which features a beautiful band shell especially designed for acoustic excellence. From June through August, each TUESDAY evening, Bay View neighbors and greater Milwaukee guests gather on the vast hillside above the band shell to enjoy music performed by local musicians. The event runs from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each week.
Bay View Neighborhood Association puts on Chill on the Hill in partnership with the Milwaukee County Parks and our generous sponsors. This popular concert series was named People’s Choice – Best Venue by the 2013 WAMI Awards, and “Best Outdoor Concert Series” in 2010 by Milwaukee Magazine.
