Say it with me: you scream, I scream, and we all scream for ice cream!

Why Does Ben & Jerry's Celebrate Free Cone Day?

Ben & Jerry's began Free Cone Day in 1979 as a thank you to their fans who supported them during the company's first year of opening in Burlington, VT. The first city location to celebrate Free Cone Day outside of Burlington was Saratoga Springs, NY.

By 1993, Free Cone Day was a national success. In 2000, Free Cone Day went global. Fun Fact: in 2009, a couple in Perth, Australia, tried to cut in line! In 2015, Ben & Jerry's made one heck of a record, giving out 1,000,000 scoops. Learn more about Free Cone Day at www.benjerry.com.
