Metropolis, Illinois Superman Celebration 2021 Dates

Superman Celebration

The Metropolis Chamber of Commerce has announced the dates for the 2021 Superman Celebration.

Usually celebrated on the second weekend in June, the 2021 Superman Celebration has been pushed back to the weekend of July 30 – August 1, taking place across only 3 days instead of the usual 4.

With the 2020 Superman Celebration having been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, Karla Ogle, a member of the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce, announced via Facebook today that the decision was made after a lot of thought and consideration.

“We want everyone to feel safe and be able to enjoy your stay in Metropolis without feeling uneasy about Covid concerns. This was a tough call, especially after having to cancel last year’s event.”

“Our decision was not an easy one, but we feel it was the best option for our attendees. We understand many of you have set your vacation time for the second weekend in June and we wholeheartedly hope you will be able to request a change and join us on the new dates. We will switch back to the second weekend in June for 2022, but for 2021 we felt June was a little too soon during this pandemic. We appreciate your understanding and cannot express how much your support and dedication to the Metropolis Superman Celebration means to us! You help make this event what it is. We will be announcing events and guests as soon as everyone is confirmed with the new dates!”
