This June, we’re kicking off our 20th summer at the SCA with a big, bold, bright, TWO DAY celebration of our colorful community at the 3rd annual Jump Into Summer Party on June 17 + 18. We’re packing Friday full of live music starting at 5:00 pm, and amping up until female-fronted, multi-instrumentalist power trio, The Accidentals hit the stage at 7:30 pm.

The party keeps GROWING on Saturday, June 18 with an exhibition celebration, yoga with Satya Yoga, family-centered activities and games, community partners, screen printing with the Printmobile, and MORE!

The Music

Long before glowing acclaim from NPR and Billboard, packed shows, unforgettable festival appearances, millions of streams, and collaborations with everyone from BTS to Contemporary Youth Orchestra, the journey of The Accidentals commenced in a public high school classroom in Traverse City, MI. Fast forward to now, The Accidentals play nationwide tours, countless festivals, host and lead workshops across the country, opened a nonprofit, and now… return to the SCA stage.
