FREE Cone Day at Dairy Queen!

It’s Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen® on the First Day of Spring

Fans can kick off spring on March 20 with a delicious DQ soft serve cone

The famous cone with the iconic curl on top takes center stage on the first day of spring as the Dairy Queen® system offers up a celebratory sweet giveaway. 

Participating non-mall Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations across the U.S. will celebrate the Fourth Annual Free Cone Day on Tuesday, March 20, the first day of spring. Fans will enjoy a free small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top (limit one per customer while supplies last).

“Silky smooth DQ® soft serve is truly one of life’s simple pleasures,” said Maria Hokanson, Executive Vice President of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “There’s a reason DQ soft serve tastes so delicious and special. It all starts with fresh milk from American dairy farmers that’s then made into our world-famous soft serve and served with pride by local DQ operators.”

During Free Cone Day, participating DQ stores will also accept donations to their local  Children’s Miracle Network® hospital, Sanford Children’s Castle of Care. The Dairy Queen system is a national partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and has raised more than $130 million since 1984 for more than 170 local children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
