How do you know it is Spring in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois?  It's not seeing robins or seeing the snow finally melt.  It is free cone day at Dairy Queen!  Lucky for all of us, Spring is just around the corner because free cone day was just announced.

Free Cone Day at Dairy Queen Is Back On for 2022!

Mask mandates have gone away. Kids are back in school. Now, Free Cone Day is back too!  I feel like I need to knock on wood somewhere before I write this but...it almost feels like "normal" may actually happen again.

If you love ice cream, get ready because I just saw the announcement from Dairy Queen that they are bringing free cone day back and it is happening March 21st!

What do you get for free on free cone day?

According to the Dairy Queen website, you can get a free small vanilla cone on March 21st, 2022.  This is at participating non-mall Dairy Queen locations and it is limited to one per person and while supplies last.  You will also need to actually go to the Dairy Queen to get this freebie because this is not valid on mobile orders or delivery.  Before you hop in a car though to get a free cone on the 21st, you will want to check with your favorite store to see if they are participating.

When are the Dairy Queen's in Rochester, Minnesota opening?

I'm going to guess that they are going to open by the 21st but, I honestly haven't heard.  The only place that I know of so far that has already opened for Spring is the Dairy Queen in Chatfield.  I got a note that they opened up on March 15th.

If you happen to see a DQ open or know when they will start serving up Blizzards and their tasty, frozen treats, let me know over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.  I'll share the news so everyone can know too.

Do you know of another freebie happening in Southeast Minnesota?  Let me know!  Send me a message to my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram.
