100 Colorado Creatives: Kalina Ross

#25: Kalina Ross

Kalina Ross has a big heart and a knack for making things happen, which might explain why the events she plans always come iced with a frosting of love and community. A former player for Urban Cipher, a group that supports entrepreneurial activities and events for local micro-businesses and craftspeople, she just finished producing Night Fair Before Christmas, a holiday market and community celebration for all ages, held just days before Christmas. And last summer, she opened her own kitchen to the public on Sundays for her Love Buzz Patio Cafe, a family affair that offered homemade meals for donations.

We asked Ross to put in words what lies beneath her cheerful, forward attitude by taking the 100CC questionnaire; read on for her upbeat answers.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
