Dairy Queen Free Cone Day

  • Start: March 19, 2020 10:00 am
  • End: March 19, 2020 10:00 pm

Update from Dairy Queen:

At DQ®, we like to sweeten the start of spring with Free Cone Day, a fan-favorite event that attracts long lines at our restaurants. In light of the growing concerns about COVID-19 (coronavirus), and the precautions established by the World Health Organization and government agencies around large public gatherings, we made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Free Cone Day, which was scheduled for Thursday, March 19 in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The health and wellbeing of our fans and crew members is our top priority, and we look forward to rescheduling at a later date when we know more.

DQ stores remain open and our focus is to provide a clean and safe place for our fans to continue to enjoy their favorite foods and treats. We are following our everyday cleaning and sanitation practices that meet and often exceed local, state and government standards. We also have increased the frequency of employee handwashing and cleaning of high-contact areas in our restaurants including door handles, pin pads for transactions, condiment and beverage stations, countertops and fan seating areas. We are continuing to monitor updates on the coronavirus and are following the guidance provided by the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Canada. 


To celebrate its partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and its loyal fans, Dairy Queen will once again host Free Cone Day on the first day of spring – March 19th, 2020.

Participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations in Central Florida will serve fans a free small vanilla soft-serve cone with the signature curl on top, and offer a chance to make a donation to Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. (At participating DQ® locations only. Limit 1 small cone per customer.)

Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $125 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in local communities and they are on a mission to continue helping sick and injured kids that need it most.

Check out the list below to see which Dairy Queen and DQ Grill & Chill® locations in Central Florida are participating in Dip It for Kids, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals initiative where in exchange for a $1 donation you can get your free cone dipped in chocolate!
