The Dream Ride Experience will feature a police escorted 40-mile motorcycle cruise through the central Connecticut countryside on Sunday morning and a motorcycle show throughout the day with unique and one-off bikes displayed. A police escorted Dream Cruise and Dream Show with exotic and classic cars are the two-marque car events for the weekend.

The Dream Ride Experience was founded and started by Michael A. Bozzuto, CEO of Bozzutos, Inc. Originally an optimistic vision with 12 motorcycles and the goal of shedding light on the countless abilities of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Over time the Foundation used the same vision to build to what it is today. In 2018, the Dream Ride Experience raised a record $2 million to support Special Olympics and the Hometown Foundation; it has raised over $9.7 million since its inception. Sponsors include Aqua Turf Club, Bozzuto's Inc., Farmington Club, The Michael Fux Foundation, and Harvest Properties.
