Goonies 2016 Calendar

Coming in July

Goonies Weekend Press Release

The Truffle Shuffle Turns 30: Anniversary Celebration for The Goonies in Historic Astoria, Ore.

Fans Return to Filming Locations to Commemorate Cult Classic in 2015

Eager to relive one of the most beloved coming-of-age stories of the 1980s, fans will flock to historic Astoria, Ore., to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the cult classic film The Goonies, June 4-7, 2015.

During the four-day event, Goonies can tour iconic film locations, hit the lanes at “Chunk’s Bowling Alley,” attend quote-a-long film screenings, listen to on-set stories from Sloth’s stunt double, sip Truffle Shuffle Stout from local Fort George Brewery, join the Truffle Shuffle 5K and seek adventure on a Geocaching scavenger hunt. The VirtuaLUG builders group, all of whom are Adult Fans of LEGO (or AFOLs), recreated iconic scenes from The Goonies that will be on display. In the spirit of One Eyed Willie’s treasure-filled ship in the film, the tall ship Lady Washington will be offering tours and sails in Astoria during the celebration. The event is sponsored in part by KOA, Dark Horse Comics and Geocaching.
Thursday, June 4, 2015 – Sunday, June 7, 2015
The Goonies was filmed at various locations across the Oregon Coast, including Astoria and Cannon Beach. Located where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean, the historic maritime community of Astoria is still home to a working waterfront. The revitalized downtown boasts a vibrant cultural scene including top breweries, art galleries, museums, a restored 1920s vaudeville theater, restaurants and local boutiques.
Individual ticketed events are now on sale at TicketsWest starting at $20.
For more information about the region, the event and local lodging options, call the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce at (800) 875-6807 or visit

Goonies magnets

NMR Distribution has two Funky Chunky (appropriate!) magnets.  These will stand on their own so they'd make great desk decor too.

Goonies Weekend - Tickets on Sale April 4th

The Goonies was filmed at several locations in and around Astoria, Oregon.  A group of fans wanting to see the movie and visit film locations in the early 2000s prompted the creation of The Goonies Weekend.  This year Astoria celebrates 30 years of the Goonies and fans can spend an entire weekend immersed in the world of the Goondocks.  Fans from all over the world flock to Astoria. There were close to 10,000 visiting for the 25th. This year they expect crowds of 12,000 - 15,000. 

All details are not finalized, so make sure you sign up for updates.  They have an amazing weekend planned! 

VirtuaLug is a group of Lego enthusiasts/builders from around the world.  Last year they put together a Goonies build for BrickCon in Seattle.  There are no Goonies Lego sets. This was designed entirely from scratch. Their masterpiece will be on display at the Astoria Armory. 

One Eyed Willie's ship The Inferno, built specifically for The Goonies, was dismantled after filming, but Astoria will be visited by the Lady Washington, a magnificent sailing vessel built in 1989.  A limited number of tickets are available to Sail With Sloth.  

Behind the Scenes of the Goonies and the Shot in Astoria Bus Tour will take place several times throughout the weekend. 

You can hunt for treasure with Geocaching, there is cosmic bowling at Chunk's Bowling Alley, block party, bonfire, film showings.......lots to keep any Goonie happy.  

Be sure to stop in to the 80s Con for a bit of nostalgia or the younger generation can get a sense of the decade that brought us The Goonies. 

If you're the active type you may want to give the Truffe Shuffle 5K walk/run a go.   

And say goodbye to Warren Field where the opening shots of Goonies were filmed.  Sadly, it'll be demolished soon and the film locale will be lost. 

There will be plenty of momentos to take home.  Albino Dragon and Ripple Junction will be at 80s Con along with several talented area artisans.  And make sure you patronize the local businesses!!  

Tickets can be purchased here starting at 10:00 AM Pacific time tomorrow:

Goonies Astoria

For those that may not know part of Goonies was filmed in Astoria, OR.  Mickey's house has become so iconic.  It's changed some, but still immediately recognizable as the Goonies house and it attracts thousands of visitors.  Astorian's couldn't be prouder.  Accordingly, Astoria is host to Goonies Weekend  which is in June every year, but really in Astoria every weekend is Goonies weekend.  Many local shops stock Goonies merchandise much of which is exclusive.  Make sure you check these shops out!!  Stock will probably increase as we get closer to the event. It's a great way to support the film and our local economy.  

Exclusive Merchandise

As I stated earlier, stock will probably increase as we approach the dates for the Goonies Weekend. I'll add info as it comes in.

Hallmark Sloth Ornament

This came out last year, but can be found on eBay and other secondary market sources.  If Hallmark stores are still doing Christmas clearance they may have some stock left.  I wanted to include this because it should be relatively easy to find and I thought it was great Hallmark recognized The Goonies.  

Funko Pops and ReAction Figures

The Pops! figures came out in 2013 but they can still be found if you hunt and who among us wouldn't love a good treasure hunt?? They should retail between $10 - $13

The ReAction figures came out last year but again still available.  They've been seen at Toys R US, WalMart, and Barnes and Noble in addition to specialty retailers.  These should retail between $10 and $14

Funko released another version of the Sloth ReAction and Pop for the San Diego Comic Con.  He can be found secondary market at some comic shops, eBay, flea markets and such 

Goonies Apparel and Accessories

Talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve......literally!!  Luckily for lovers of all things Goondocks there's no shortage of Goonies regalia.  Lots of styles to choose from to express your inner One Eyed Willy!

Kohls has 5 tees for men including 2 online exclusives
