Where To Get Free Doughnuts On National Doughnut Day

By Megan Whitfield - 31 May 2018


It seems like just about everything has its own day nowadays—paperclip day, cellophane day, nerd pride day—we wish we were making this up. But when they taste as good this Friday, you won’t catch us complaining.

Now we’ve built the suspense we're happy to declare that Friday June 1 is National Doughnut Day. That’s right, those doughy, sugary, jammy, icing-y balls of deliciousness have their own day. The only thing better than knowing this day exists are all the events going round Melbourne in celebration. Ooooh boy, prepare for a sugar rush.

Free Jam Doughnuts At Dandee Donuts

Dandee Doughnuts have an important place in Melburnian’s hearts…and possibly our arteries. This Friday they’re reminding us yet again why we love them so, with free hot jam doughies all round. Get 'em in you from 8am sharp. 

When: June 1, 8am—4pm
Where: Dandenong Market

Vouchers At American Doughnut Kitchen

Arguably even more of an institution than Dandee (and only just), American Doughnut Kitchen at Queen Vic market is getting in on the festivities. They’re not giving out doughnuts, but they ARE offering the chance to win a $60 gift card each hour, between 10am—2pm. Now that could buy you a whole lotta doughnuts.

When: June 1, 10am—2pm, one gift card every hour

1c Doughnuts On Deliveroo

We can barely remember what 1 cent looks like, but that's what doughnuts will cost you on Deliveroo this Friday. One freaking cent. Here's how it's gonna work: Deliveroo have teamed up with the guys at Lukumades to offer a 3 pack of classic loukoumades soaked in honey and cinnamon. You can get them from 6pm, and delivery is free. Check out this page for all the deets. 

When: Friday 1 June, from 6pm

For winter, you’ve got the Snowball (dark chocolate goodness with coconut and vanilla crème and topped with marshmallow), spring brings Ispahan (rose crème and raspberry gel, topped with freeze-dried lychee), summer is a pina colada in fried-dough form, and autumn rounds things out with vanilla pecan with maple glaze.
