It has been an intense winter, to say the least, but bright and sunny days are ahead. Spring is ready to bring us all the things we love about the season: warmer weather, Easter’s chocolate bunnies and, most importantly, free ice cream from our friends at Dairy Queen.

All About Free Cone Day 2019
That’s right! Dairy Queen is bringing back the legendary Free Cone Day for 2019. If you’re not familiar with Free Cone Day, your mind is about to be blown. On Wednesday, March 20, the fast-food restaurant we all know and love will be handing out free vanilla cones.
What’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one. The first day of spring has been dubbed Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen for the past five years. In a recent promotion released by the company, Dairy Queen states that 92% of Americans are happier with a soft-serve cone in hand. We believe it!

Got an ice cream craving? Here’s how to get a free DQ Blizzard right now.
Don’t Miss Out
Only participating locations will be giving out those curly-headed cones on March 20. If you’re concerned about getting your hands on this freebie, it’s worth it to give your local DQ a call.
Afraid you’re going to miss Free Cone Day? Don’t sweat it. Between March 21 and March 31, you’ll be able to get your hands on small cone (regular or dipped in chocolatey goodness) for a budget-friendly 50 cents, as opposed to the standard $1.99.
Psst! A rumor has been circulating on Twitter that Ben & Jerry’s is hosting its own Free Cone Day on April 9th. The more free ice cream, the better!
