Dairy Queen to Give Away Free Ice Cream Today for Free Cone Day

By  | 

Texans usually know where their nearest Dairy Queen is located, and today that knowledge will come in handy! To celebrate Free Cone Day, the DQ will offer visitors one free small vanilla cone at each participating location. The offer is only good for today, March 20th, so make sure you plan your day accordingly.

WFAA adds that Dairy Queen isn’t just celebrating the first day of spring with their original holiday, they’re also hoping to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year, DQ was able to raise over $200,000, all from the generosity customers feel when they receive the sweet treat of a vanilla ice cream with a signature swirl on top. After 32 years, they’ve given over $120 million to the hospital network.

Dairy Queen’s vice president of marketing, Barry Westrum, said, “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.’ We can’t think of a better way to show our appreciation to fans, kick off the spring and support such an amazing cause than with a Free Cone Day.”
