Here’s a little-known fact: the first day of Spring also happens to be ‘Free Cone Day’ for Dairy Queen.
Today only, customers can grab a free vanilla scoop in a cone- all you have to do is show up at your local Dairy Queen and request the freebie! The celebration brings ‘treat szn’ to the forefront of our minds, as the winter chill ebbs and cherry blossoms start to bloom!
While this promotion is available throughout the U.S. we do need to highlight how many great free days and celebrations exist in Chicago. From free museum days, to multiple public art pieces, and free conservatory reservations, Chicago is all about saving a buck but never compromising on experience.
There’s no purchase necessary to get a free small vanilla soft serve, which means all you have to do is ask for a free cone at the counter.
This once-a-year promotion is available at valid participating U.S. non-mall locations. While there’s a limit on your order- as you can only request one cone per person, while supplies last! Free Cone Day started in 2014 and was canceled in 2021, but now the tradition has returned. Why not take part before the day is over?
With multiple locations throughout Chicago, there are so many opportunities to reward yourself to a nice mid-day treat. Find your local Dairy Queen location here.
