Ben & Jerry’s on Thames Street will celebrate Free Cone Day in the tastiest way possible….with free cups and cones of your favorite ice cream!

On April 10th, between 12 pm – 8 pm, head to the Ben & Jerry’s at 359 Thames Street for your free cone or cup of ice cream, it’s Ben & Jerry’s way of once again saying thank you!

It was 39 years ago when future ice cream household namesakes Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield shocked themselves with their accomplishment: the duo had made it through their first year as business owners. And so, they wanted to create a way to thank the community that supported them. Their decision? Free cones for everyone. So they threw open the doors and scooped out every last bit of ice cream to the long lines of appreciative fans. Every year since, Ben & Jerry’s has continued this tradition with its annual Free Cone Day, the Ben & Jerriest day of the year!

Ben & Jerry’s partners with local non-profit organizations throughout the year and especially on Free Cone Day, so donate what you can when picking up your free cup or cone on April 10th!

 

The Ben & Jerry’s on Bannister’s Wharf will not yet be open for the season and will not be participating in Free Cone Day.
