Steer Roast

Steer Roast is a weekend gathering of Senior House residents, friends, and alumni which has been held annually since 1963. Events include the ceremonial lighting of the barbeque pit, two nights of live music, the festive meal, the awards ceremony, and more.

Since the shutdown of Senior House, Steer Roast has been held at various venues in and around Cambridge.

The next Steer Roast (originally scheduled for May 1-3, 2020) has been postponed due to Corona virus. More details will be posted here as they become available.

Steer Roast is entirely funded by the Senior House Corporation and your generous donations. Anyone can donate, but if you are a Senior House alum, we ask that you also become a member of the corporation (there is no membership fee). We request your help in funding Steer Roast — please make donations via our PayPal funding page:
