This year the lines will look a little different—social distanced and six feet apart—but that doesn’t mean we won’t be celebrating the same.
National Donut Day falls on Friday, June 5, 2020. Where and how to celebrate National Donut Day 2020 in Lexington, KY?
Crank & Boom Ice Cream
Donuts and ice cream. Is there a better duo? Crank & Boom will have Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches available for curbside pick up at both locations on Friday, June 5. Made with North Lime glazed donuts, your choice of ice cream flavor, and any toppings you would like to add (extra charge). Pre-orders will be taken through Wednesday, June 3 at 11:59 PM.
The bakery will be making a surplus of their normal donuts—blueberry, glazed, chocolate frosted, and more—available for pick up via drive-thru only.

Celebrate with a free classic donut with any beverage purchase on Friday, June 5.
Donut Day falling on a Friday calls for a week long celebration. Starting on June 1 through June 5, Krispy Kreme plans to give customers a free doughnut of any kind. No purchase is necessary. Literally all you have to do is show up.
All weekend long, Magee’s is offering a glazed donut sandwich with your choice of a burger or chicken in honor of Donut Day on Friday, June 5.
