For most, it's hard to keep up with the constant flurry of Nationally themed days but there's one that you don't want to miss – National Doughnut Day!

That's right, June 2 marks one of the sweetest (pun intended) days on the calendar. It doesn't matter if you spell in doughnut or donut, they are all equally delicious. 

Start your day off with a donut and a coffee, enjoy one as a mid-day snack, or devour a decadent one as a desert. There's really no bad way to eat a donut.

Just in case you need a little help, here are a few of the places celebrating National Donut Day.


Las Vegas-based Crunch Donut Factory® will be offering a free donut to all customers, with any purchase, on Friday, June 2nd for National Donut Day.  The shop features waffles, ice cream, and specialty donuts such as the S’Morgan Freeman, Ellen DoughGenerous, and Katy Cherry to name a few.   


Donut devotees can rejoice by ringing in the holiday at Dunkin’ Donuts with a free donut offer to sweeten the celebration. Continuing a National Donut Day tradition at Dunkin’ Donuts, the brand will observe one of its favorite days of the year by offering guests a free classic donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage on June 2. Guests can celebrate the holiday with the new Vanilla Cake Batter Donut or new Dunkin’ Donuts Sprinkles Donut, as well as the other popular Dunkin’ Donuts classic donuts. The offer is good all day on June 2 at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide.


One free doughnut of your choice on Jun 2, no purchase necessary.


 In celebration of National Doughnut Day, Pink Box Doughnuts will donate a portion of their sales from both valley locations to The Salvation Army of Southern Nevada.

The Salvation Army is often credited with popularizing the doughnut in the United States through its service to troops during World War I. In order to raise funds needed during The Great Depression, The Salvation Army began honoring 250 WWI volunteers and “lassies” on the inaugural National Doughnut Day in 1938.


To encourage even more Las Vegas workers to impress their coworkers this Friday, Postmates is delivering a free dozen donuts to the first 5,000 Las Vegas dwellers who download Postmates and order on June 2.
