Heartwarming. Inspiring. Moving.

Dream Ride is the signature event of The Hometown Foundation which umbrellas all of our organizations efforts throughout the year into a multi-day extravaganza, primarily benefiting The Special Olympics and The Hometown Foundation, Inc. Because of Dream Ride, our organization has been able to donate 7.7 million dollars to date to The Special Olympics. Throughout this weekend, you will find a little something for everyone, from car and bike rally’s, to pet adoptions, food trucks, entertainment, a carnival and much more!

Over the years, The Dream Ride Experience has evolved into a year-long community commitment to celebrate the achievements of Special Olympics athletes and individuals with intellectual disabilities. The Experience honors these men, women, and children living with intellectual disabilities in our communities and highlights their determination and willingness to persevere, overcome challenges, and shatter stereotypes. The Dream Ride Experience advocates for inclusion and building friendships amongst not only the athletes, but also the participants.

Thousands of motorcyclists and hundreds of automotive enthusiasts venture to Farmington, Connecticut, with the same goal of supporting Special Olympics & The Hometown Foundation, Inc. While many athletes make the trip not knowing what the weekend will hold, it’s fair to say this is where dreams come true!
