The summer of 2020 brings us to the 16th Season of Chill on the Hill! Starting June 2 and running through September 8th, we will have 15 weeks (2 more nights than the typical season!) of neighbors and friends enjoying a music-filled hill.
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. This year, our season takes us all the way past Labor Day with a special presentation on September 8th of the U.S. Navy Band!
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! Each level comes with unique perks. We can design a program that gives you the most of what you want from Chill. If you have an idea for a sponsor level, just let us know. We'll figure it out!
