National Donut Day
Recognized on the 1st Friday of June each year, National Donut Day has roots in fundraising for soldiers, but today usually represents an opportunity to enjoy free donuts. While some places still choose to fundraise on doughnut day, many places simply celebrate the popular sweet bakery treats.
A handful of doughnut shops are large enough to have multiple locations open across the country. These restaurants, including Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, will generally offer a free doughnut on donut day. Some offers require rewards program enrollment, e-newsletter subscriptions, or downloading a rewards app.
Local doughnut shops may or may not have big promotions for National Doughnut Day. Still, gems like Voodoo Doughnuts (Portland, OR), Sublime Doughnuts (Atlanta, GA), and Cafe Du Monde (New Orleans, LA) offer unique doughnuts that are worth the trip even without a special offer.
