The Chill on the Hill summer concert series is created to provide a welcoming, relaxed summer music experience on the UW-River Falls campus. The series is made possible thanks to support from the City of River Falls Municipal Utilities, the River Falls Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau and the UW-River Falls Foundation. Concert guests are encouraged to experience the vibrant River Falls downtown for food and accommodations before and after the shows. Be sure to visit Experience River Falls for the latest town happenings.

New in 2024, Chill on the Hill is also partnering with the River Falls Community Arts Base Music in the Park summer concert series to provide a new venue for three of their weekly musical acts. Special appreciation also goes to the UWRF partners in University Advancement and Alumni Relations, Career Services, Student Involvement, and University Communications and Marketing who are providing additional resources in support of the series.
