41st Annual Superman Celebration


Metropolis, Illinois

What started as a 1-day “Homecoming” for the local residents has now evolved into a 4-day celebration that attracts Superman Fans and families from around the world. 47 States and 6 different countries were represented at the 2016 Celebration. 2017 marks the 45th year that Metropolis, IL has been designated as the adopted “Home of Superman.” As we move towards our 41st Annual Superman Celebration, we reflect on the years that started our journey and the phenomenon that it has become. The 41st Annual Superman Celebration kicks off at 5 pm on Thursday, June 6th and runs through 2 pm on Sunday, June 9th. Many special events are planned for this year’s Celebration including musical entertainment, a carnival, Superman Celebrity Autograph and Q & A Sessions, and the Heroes & Villains Costume Contest. We also have some special touches that will make this year the year to visit our celebration – whether it is your first time with us, or you are a returning fan!
