Dairy Queen Free Cone Day on March 20th

Dairy Queen Free Cone Day on March 20thWho is ready for the first day of spring on March 20th? Who loves great-tasting ice cream? If you said YES to both of those questions, you’ll want to head to your nearby Dairy Queen on March 20th to celebrate the first day of spring with a free ice cream cone!

The Dairy Queen® system is serving up a sweet deal to thank fans and celebrate the first day of Spring with a Free Cone Day.

On Monday, March 20, participating non-mall Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations in the U.S. will host a Free Cone Day when fans can enjoy a FREE small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top (limit one per customer while supplies last). At the same time, participating locations also will collect donations for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®.

“Soft serve is part of our brand DNA and the taste is unmatchable. The DQ® soft-serve cone fans have come to love is one of the most recognized treats in the world and is fondly referred to as the ‘cone with the curl on top,'” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of Marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “We can’t think of a better way to show our appreciation to fans, kick off the Spring season and support such an amazing cause than with a Free Cone Day.”

Over the last 32 years, the Dairy Queen system of locations that are franchised by ADQ, a Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A and BRK.B) company, has raised more than $120 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities.

Last year, the Dairy Queen system raised more than $200,000 in one day for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. For more information about the Dairy Queen system, visit DairyQueen.com.

    I love that they have been able to collect so much for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital by giving a free cone and asking for donations. I hope that this year was just as successful.

  2. I have a Dairy Queen right up the street from me so I appreciate knowing this. Tomorrow sounds like a good day to stop by there with my grandchildren.

  3. I put it on my calendar for Monday after swimming. Thanks for the info.

  4. Oh, I love Dairy Queen, and this is just one more reason to lament the fact that there’s not a DQ anywhere near here! I didn’t realize DQ had such a long-term relationship with The Children’s Miracle Network. They do such good work for some very deserving kids. Enjoy your free ice cream on Monday!

    I might have to break down and get a cone! We love DQ and they have great ice cream. We have one not far away, and we treat ourselves during the summer. This is the perfect excuse to go.
