Carvel Ice Cream: Free Cone Day 2023
For years, Carvel offered Free Cone Day at the end of April. This sweet freebie was a fan favorite, for sure! Of course, for the past few years they’ve had to cancel or postpone the beloved free ice cream holiday. I wasn’t able to find anything for 2023, so I reached out to Carvel on Facebook.
As you can see, they’re playing with our emotions. LOL!
When is Carvel Free Cone Day?
Carvel Free Cone Day has traditionally always been on a Thursday, at the end of April or the very beginning of May. If history is any indication, then this year Free Cone Day might be on Thursday, April 28, 2022.

Free Cone Day press release from 2017:
Carvel… America’s Freshest Ice Cream® is kicking off ice cream season by celebrating their annual Free Cone Day next Thursday, April 27, from 3-8 p.m. Guests who visit participating shoppes will be treated to a FREE junior soft ice cream cone filled with their choice of freshly made vanilla, chocolate or Cookie Butter – Carvel’s newest, limited-time flavor, inspired by the irresistibly creamy, spreadable treat from Lotus Biscoff®.
As if getting FREE ice cream doesn’t feel good enough, Carvel is partnering for the sixth year with The American Red Cross to spread good will in support of the charity’s annual Giving Day. While supplies last, Carvel will offer a $1 coupon book worth more than $20 in Carvel savings, with all proceeds contributing to Carvel’s donation to the American Red Cross. Including donations this year, total contributions to support disaster relief efforts will exceed $150,000.
“Free Cone Day is much more than just a ‘freebie’ day” said Scott Colwell, president of Carvel. “Not only is it the official start of ice cream season, but it’s a special day for us to show genuine gratitude to our loyal guests while coming together to raise funds for a very worthy cause.”
