At my request, the chiefs (i.e., David Colton) of the Rondo Hatton Classic Horror Awards modified the ballot designation of the Superman Plaque Dedication for "Best Fan Event" to also include all of the activities of the Superman Celebration weekend.
Besides the plaque dedication, the luncheon and the tour of the Pasadena Playhouse are now included.
Here's how the ballot designation appears at the official Rondo Award website with the Superman Celebration listing highlighted:
