In honor of their 35th year of partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, DQ®locations across the nation will celebrate Children’s Hospitals Week and the first day of spring with their annual Free Cone Day on March 20.

Fans of DQ can celebrate the first day of spring with a free sweet treat at participating non-mall Dairy Queen® and DQ Grill & Chill® locations and help bring happiness and healing to kids at their local children’s hospital.

Customers will receive a free small soft serve cone just for coming in on March 20. Some locations will use the opportunity to raise critical funds for their local children’s hospital, with the goal of bringing comfort and smiles to kids treated at 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada.
