Wanting to enjoy some delicious Dairy Queen for the 4th of July 2020? Although many locations are open, the hours can vary by location and some local stores may be closed. Because of this, you’ll want to check your local Dairy Queen before heading out today. There are also some great specials and promos that you can take advantage of if you’re wanting to enjoy a special Independence Day treat while social distancing. Read on for more details.
Many Dairy Queen Locations Are Open for the 4th of July, But Some May Be Closed
Many Dairy Queen locations are open for the Fourth of July, but not all of them. Because hours and closures can vary, it’s a good idea to check with your nearest location before heading over.
A representative of Dairy Queen told Heavy that for most holidays: “The majority of Dairy Queen restaurants are independently owned by franchisees. To locate the address and hours of restaurants near you, please see our website, DQ.com.”
Find your nearest Dairy Queen through the locator and learn its hours here.
Hours can vary widely. For example, a Dairy Queen in Oklahoma is closing early at 4 p.m. so the staff can enjoy the holiday.
Meanwhile, other Dairy Queens might be open for their full hours today.
And some Dairy Queens, like one in Iola, Kansas, will be closed completely today.
Note that depending on the circumstances in your region, how the store is operating may vary from location to location. For example, a Dairy Queen in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania is open only for drive-thru.
If your local Dairy Queen is open, you can also order delivery if it’s available where you live. Grubhub and DoorDash often offer Dairy Queen delivery, for example. And these services also offer contactless delivery where you pay through the app and then the food is simply left on your doorstep. Some Dairy Queen locations offer drive-thru, takeout, or delivery services only.
In addition, the stores have special summer menu options, including the Raspberry Fudge Bliss Blizzard Cake and the Wonder Woman Cookie Collision Blizzard Cake.
Dairy Queen is also offering a Summer Blizzard Menu. This includes flavors like the Raspberry Fudge Bliss, the Wonder Woman Cookie Collision, the Frosted Animal Cookie, the S’mores, the Cotton Candy, and the Oreo Cheesecake.

Some individual stores are offering specials unique to their location (or a few limited locations) for Independence Day. For example, a store in Kentucky is offering 4th of July themed cakes.
This is why it’s always a good idea to check what your local Dairy Queen may be offering today.
You might also be able to get some special deals through the Dairy Queen mobile app. Download the DQ Mobile App here. Many local Dairy Queen stores offer their own “deals of the day” through the mobile app.
