The Dream Ride Experience is more than just a weekend event; it is a year-round movement of making dreams come true through #DreamRide365.
The Dream Ride Experience is the signature fundraising event of The Hometown Foundation, Inc. The weekend features family fun for all! It also includes the Dream Cruise, a Saturday police-escorted journey where drivers pair up with Dream Riders in their classic/exotic vehicles for a 12-mile cruise, Dream Show featuring cars and motorcycles, culminating in the Dream Ride, a Sunday motorcycle tour through the Farmington, Connecticut countryside, all to benefit The Hometown Foundation, Inc.
Over the years, The Dream Ride Experience has evolved into a year-long community commitment to celebrate the achievements of our Dream Riders, the true heart and soul of our event. Our Dream Riders are Special Olympics athletes and individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities from over 25 different states and three countries. The Experience honors these men, women, and children living with intellectual disabilities in our communities.
