Chill on the Hill is canceled for 2020

Another Milwaukee summer staple has unsurprisingly nixed its plans this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as the Bay View Neighborhood Association announced today that Chill on the Hill has officially been canceled for 2020.

The free live music series, hosted at Humboldt Park, was originally scheduled to begin on June 2 and run through Sept. 8. Last month, the event delayed its start date, tenuously setting July 21 as its new opening night.

However, according to a release from the Bay View Neighborhood Association, the organization was given a directive from Milwaukee County Parks officials stating that "it is with public health and safety in mind that Milwaukee County Parks will not be issuing permits or approvals for special events through the end of September due to the current public health situation."

"We had a fantastic season booked for 2020, and we will be offering all of those bands the opportunity to play at Chill on the Hill in 2021," said executive producer Patty Thompson, in the release. "We will be working hard over the summer to help support our local businesses that have sponsored our event for so many years."

So, as with just about any large crowded event these days, see you there next year!
