Our members are Dedicated, Committed and Caring and we work very hard to have the safest, most fun ride event in the area.  Yes, there are a lot of benefit rides out there, but what sets us apart from the rest is our track record.  We have developed a formula over the last 11 years for successful, fun events.  
 
You do not need to ride a motorcycle to come to our events or to be a member.

But, through the years, some things have never changed. Good Neighbor Festival is still family fun, good music, great food and the good neighbor ethic. And it always will be.

Good Neighbor Festival grows out of the Middleton community. As the major fundraiser of the year for Middleton’s non-profit organizations, the event supports charities and worthy causes throughout the Middleton area. Event organizers continue to hope that visitors to Good Neighbor Festival attend not only to have a good time, but also to support the Middleton organizations that help our neighbors most in need.
