Bay View’s Chill on the Hill Is Back!

The first show will be on July 13.

The Bay View Neighborhood Association and Milwaukee County Parks are bringing back Chill on the Hill for the 2021 season. This will be the weekly live concert series’ 16th season at the Humboldt Park Band Chalet.

Like most Milwaukee events, Chill on the Hill was canceled in 2020. The upcoming season will include an expansion of its footprint in Humboldt Park to create more space for guests and social distancing. 

“Our neighbors need this kind of community connection more than ever, and this event provides the space and place to do that,” Executive Producer of Chill on the Hill Patty Thompson said in a Facebook post about the event
