Dairy Queen announced this week that it would be canceling its annual Free Cone Day for 2021 due to concerns regarding crowding during the COVID-19 pandemic. The chain posted the notice on its Facebook page yesterday, informing fans that the event would not be happening this year: "As spring approaches, we all look forward to Free Cone Day, an event that attracts long lines at our restaurants. Dairy Queen is just the latest chain to cancel or alter their annual promotions that tend to draw crowds in an effort to keep people safe as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. 7-Eleven also took a similar approach for its Free Slurpee Day last summer.
