Bringing World Batman Day to DSM

World Batman Day

June 8, 2022

Make a day of geeking out in Greater Des Moines (DSM) to celebrate the caped crusader and all things Batman during World Batman Day Iowa. The Iowa League of Heroes will act as host to World Batman Day Iowa, a global celebration taking place this fall on Saturday, Sept. 17. The Iowa League of Heroes is always looking to make a difference and bring smiles to children and families fighting difficult battles. World Batman Day Iowa is one more way to create memories for families around DSM. 

Events in the Works World Batman Day

Currently, there are several local organizations looking at ways to help celebrate World Batman Day Iowa, including a possible movie marathon and Batman-centric events with local sports organizations. World Batman Day Iowa will conclude with a bat signal lighting, and event organizers with the Iowa League of Heroes are looking into buildings to reflect the symbol on and showcase downtown. Locals and professional photographers alike won’t want to miss the opportunity to capture the bat signal on a Downtown DSM landmark — so mark your calendars now!

How to Get Involved as a Local Business

So, how can businesses in DSM take part in the event? Startup and small business owners can help comic book fans celebrate by hosting themed parties, holding comic book readings, creating Batman-themed drink/food specials — think “The Poison Ivy” — and more.

Event planning is gearing up and ongoing, and now is the time to take part in it! We hope you’ll help us make World Batman Day Iowa an unforgettable event for visitors and residents to celebrate a superhero and support local businesses.
