About The Weekend

The Dream Ride Experience is the signature fundraising event of The Hometown Foundation, Inc. and –in conjunction with the #DreamRide365 year-round movement – celebrates the achievements of our Dream Riders who are Special Olympics athletes and individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities from more than 30 states and three countries. This year’s event will be held August 23 to 25, 2024 and highlights the Dream Riders’ determination and willingness to persevere, overcome challenges, and shatter stereotypes all year long.

The Dream Show – which will be held August 25, 2024 – welcomes hundreds of car owners and enthusiasts from around the world as they converge on the Farmington Polo Club in Farmington, CT. Enter your car into the judged show, which is juried by our world class judging team! Whether it is the rumble of a 427 Cobra or the sleek lines of an E-Type, this 13-class judged show appeals to all enthusiasts!
