Dairy Queen Free Cone Day Is March 16

I scream. You scream. You know what happens next — we all scream… for ice cream. And on Monday, all that screaming will be greeted with free cones at Dairy Queen as part of the company’s 75th anniversary celebration.

Customers can pick up a free five-ounce vanilla soft-serve cone all day on Monday, March 16, at participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill locations throughout the United States.

Much like other restaurants’ food giveaways, these aren’t free cones just in the name of feeding hungry customers — DQ locations are promoting free cone day to fuel donations to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, with participating stores accepting donations.

All donations collected will stay in the communities where they’re raised to support the local kids at CMN Hospitals.
