Free Cone Day Back at Dairy Queen Stores in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin

We will probably still have some snow on the ground on the first day of Spring but throw on those shorts and tank tops because Dairy Queen is celebrating!  Free Cone Day is back on March 20th at participating Dairy Queen locations throughout the country.

“We like to think of Free Cone Day as the beginning of our favorite season – treat season! As we welcome the first day of spring, we invite all fans to stop by a DQ restaurant, get their free cone and make great memories with friends and family,” said Maria Hokanson, executive vice president, marketing at ADQ.

What Free Items Do You Get on Free Cone Day?

According to the Dairy Queen Facebook page and website, you can enjoy a free small vanilla cone (complete withe curl on top).  The limit is one per customer and are while supplies last.  If you were thinking of DoorDashing the free cone, you will need to hop in a car yourself because this is only for in person orders - not delivery or mobile orders.

I did hear that the Dairy Queen's participating were non-mall DQ® and DQ Grill & Chill® locations throughout the U.S., but to see if your favorite place is on the list, just check the Dairy Queen website here.
