How to Get Free Food on the First Day of Spring

How to Get Free Food on the First Day of Spring


Dairy Queen and Rita’s are giving away free icy treats to celebrate the arrival of warmer weather

There’s still snow on the ground, so spring has arrived in name only.

What’s the best way to celebrate the arrival of spring on March 20th? Why, with free cold treats, of course! We already told you about the small vanilla cones being given out at Dairy Queen locations across America to celebrate the first day of spring. But DQ isn’t the only one welcoming warmer days ahead with frozen treats. Rita’s — a Pennsylvania-based chain that serves Italian ices and custards — is giving out free small ices on March 20 for the 25th year in a row.

Celebrants of Rita’s silver anniversary will get to indulge in classic ice flavors like cherry, Swedish Fish, and cotton candy, as well as unusual seasonal varieties and newer additions like Peeps, Twizzlers, and Hawaiian Punch.

In the past, you didn’t have to choose between Free Cone Day at DQ and Free Ices Day, because they usually did not coincide. But why not head over to both Dairy Queen and Rita’s? DQ is giving you some incentive, after all: They will be donating proceeds to the Children’s Miracle Network.


Dairy Queen cancels Free Cone Day 2021, its annual first day of spring freebie, amid COVID-19

Add another food holiday to the COVID-19 list of cancellations: Dairy Queen's Free Cone Day.

Dairy Queen announced on its Facebook page that it has "made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Free Cone Day." The event was held annually on the first day of spring but was postponed in 2020 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"As spring approaches, we all look forward to Free Cone Day, an event that attracts long lines at our restaurants. Given the state of COVID-19, we've made the difficult decision to cancel this year's event with your safety and the safety of our crew members in mind," the company said in a statement.

Many restaurants have changed or canceled giveaways during the pandemic to prevent crowds.

Last summer, 7-Eleven canceled its one-day Free Slurpee Day, held annually on July 11, and gave members of its loyalty program a month to redeem a coupon for a free Slurpee. Chick-fil-A's Cow Appreciation Day 2020 was postponed but was not rescheduled.

IHOP announced last week it has canceled National Pancake Day 2021 but will still give away free pancakes. The chain is flipping the annual one-day event into a monthlong promotion for MyHOP email club members who sign up by March 31.

Dairy Queen gave some hope that its event would return.

"We look forward to bringing back Free Cone Day in 2022 and celebrating our fans in a sweet way," the company's statement said.
