Steer Roast

Steer Roast is a weekend gathering of Senior House residents, friends, and alumni which has been held annually since 1964. 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. This year’s Steer Roast will be held on May 3-5, 2019. For various legal reasons, we are not allowed to publicly post all of the Roast details here, but you can join our mailing list by becoming a member of the corporation.

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 this year’s Roast — please make donations via our Crowd Supply funding page:
