The Superman Celebration is an annual four-day festival sponsored by The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce and the City of Metropolis- The Official Home of Superman.  
Held in Metropolis, Illinois during the second weekend of June every year, it celebrates Superman and all thing super-heroic with featured celebrity and artist guests, a costume contest, concerts, a film festival, and many other family-oriented events.  
Admission to Superman Celebration is free. For more information, please see our website at

I have never been to a Superman Celebration, but I did visit Metropolis in November 2016 and toured the Super Museum. It is well worth a visit! Also in town, is a statue honoring Noel Neill as Lois Lane.

Since this is the celebration's 40th anniversary and the 80th anniversary of Superman, this year's event will be a special one.
