Solspace Calendar is the original and premier event and calendaring add-on for ExpressionEngine!
Calendar offers up both power and simplicity, giving you all kinds of options to satisfy your calendar needs. Need a simple display of daily activities? How about a monthly calendar? Need to fully control every table, div, and class that makes up the HTML that will become your calendar? Calendar can do all that and more.
Calendar utilizes the power of ExpressionEngine’s Channel module. Every event is created in an intuitive fieldtype as part of a channel entry. Therefore, you can take advantage of any and as many custom fields and field types, categories, etc to go along with your calendar event data. If you can do it to an entry in EE, you can do it to a Calendar event.
Events in Calendar allow you to make recurrences and exclude dates. Need weekly events? Have a group that meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month? How about a monthly meeting that does not meet during the summer? Calendar can do all that.
Last but not least, Calendar allows you to export your events as ICS data, allowing your users to import your event data directly into other calendar applications like Google Calendar, Apple Calendar, Microsfot Outlook, and more.
Calendar 2.2.0 only works on ExpressionEngine 3.3+, but includes a copy of Calendar 1.8.14, which is compatible with ExpressionEngine 2.10.x / 2.11.x. If you're still using ExpressionEngine 2.x, you can use the EE2 compatible version until you're ready to upgrade your site to ExpressionEngine 3.x.
The latest version of Calendar is 2.2.0. The chart below shows the current technical requirements and compatibility for the latest version of Calendar.
Calendar currently only supports the latest version of ExpressionEngine plus 1 point version back. The red, vertical dashed line represents the cut-off for EE versions we support. EE versions to the right of that line are no longer supported by us with our add-ons. The icon represents an update specifically for compatibility with that EE version. Please upgrade to this add-on version before upgrading to that version of ExpressionEngine.
Date formats below are: M/D/YYYY. As always, we recommend that you always use the latest versions of our add-ons. However, this chart may answer some of your questions about upgrading the Solspace Calendar add-on and ExpressionEngine, and reduce the risk of incompatibility. This chart also serves as a guide to see when support for the latest version of ExpressionEngine becomes available.

We've applied Calendar to a number of challenging projects, including a major University to a well-known movie theater in NYC, and it has come through every single time. We recommend it highly!
My client was looking for a calendar on their directory site after a lot of searching around and trying to build our own in house, we settled on Calendar from Solspace.
The output is really customizable making it look really streamlined on your site, and not just another 3rd party solution that’s plugged into your site with no thought whatsoever.
Perfect for a church website, this add-on saved a ton of time in getting a church calendar up and running. The .ics integration worked fine, and hooking up multiple calendars was easy.
For updating instructions, please visit the documentation.
IMPORTANT: If you're upgrading from Calendar 1.x on ExpressionEngine 2.x, it's recommended that you upload the new Calendar files to your new ExpressionEngine 3.x site directory just before running the EE2 -> EE3 upgrade. Please see Calendar 1.x to 2.x Upgrade Guide before considering upgrading.
