Simple Responsive Event Calendar Plugin For jQuery - jquery-calendar.js

The jquery-calendar.js plugin helps you create responsive, nice-looking calendars with support for variable colors and custom events.

How to use it:

1. Load the stylesheet calendar.css in the head section that will provide the primary CSS styles for the event calendar.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="calendar.css">

2. Create a container element to place your event calendar.

<div id="calendar"></div>

3. Load jQuery library and the JavaScript file jquery-calendar.js.

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="js/jquery-calendar.js"></script>

4. Initialize the plugin to generate a default calendar inside the container you just created.


5. Add your own events to the calendar.

var events = [
    {start: '2017-04-01', end: '2017-04-07', summary: "Event #1", mask: true}, 
    {start: '2017-04-21', end: '2017-04-28', summary: "Event #2", mask: true},
  events: events

6. Override the default color scheme.


  // yellow, pink, green, orange, purple
  // blue, turquoise (default) or none
  color: false

7. More configuration options to customize the calendar.


  date: new Date(), // initial date
  months: ['January', 'February', 'March', 'April', 'May', 'June', 'July', 'August', 'September', 'October', 'November', 'December'],
  days: ['Sunday', 'Monday', 'Tuesday', 'Wednesday', 'Thursday', 'Friday', 'Saturday'],
  daysMin: ['SUN', 'MON', 'TUE', 'WED', 'THU', 'FRI', 'SAT'],
  dayLetter: ['S', 'M', 'T', 'W', 'T', 'F', 'S'],




  • Updated to include a Monday starting day, in addition to the default Sunday starting day.


  • Updated the event dates to use the forward slash separator instead of hyphens. This stops the Safari Browser from throwing an Invalid Date error.


  • JS cleanup.
