How Do I Add a Calendar to Webflow?

Adding a calendar to your Webflow website can be a great way to keep your visitors informed about upcoming events, appointments, or important dates. In this tutorial, we will explore how to add a calendar to your Webflow site using HTML and CSS.

Step 1: Create the HTML Structure

To start, let’s create the basic structure for our calendar. Within the body of your HTML document, add a container div with a unique ID. This will serve as the main container for our calendar.



Explanation: We have created a div element with an ID of “calendar”. This element will act as the placeholder for our calendar.

Step 2: Add CSS Styling

Now that we have our HTML structure in place, let’s add some CSS styling to make our calendar visually appealing. We can use CSS to customize the appearance of our calendar elements such as colors, fonts, and layout.



Explanation: We have added a style block within our HTML document and Targeted the calendar ID using “#” symbol followed by “calendar”. You can add any desired styles within this block to customize the appearance of your calendar.

Step 3: Use JavaScript Libraries

To make our calendar functional, we need to utilize JavaScript libraries that provide ready-to-use calendar functionalities. One popular library is To use it, you can include its CDN link within the head section of your HTML document:



Explanation: We have included the necessary JavaScript files and CSS stylesheets for using the script and link tags respectively. These files are hosted on a CDN (Content Delivery Network) and can be directly linked to your HTML document.

Step 4: Initialize the Calendar

Now that we have our HTML structure, CSS styling, and JavaScript libraries in place, let’s initialize the calendar within a script tag.



Explanation: We have added a script block within our HTML document that listens to the DOMContentLoaded event. When this event is fired (i.e., when the DOM has finished loading), we initialize the calendar using the FullCalendar constructor. You can customize your calendar by adding various options within the curly braces.

Step 5: Customize Your Calendar

Now, let’s explore some common customization options you can apply to your calendar:

  • Event Sources: You can add events to your calendar by specifying their sources. For example, you can fetch events from an external JSON file or an API endpoint.
  • Date Ranges: You can set up a specific date range for your calendar to display events within a particular timeframe.
  • Customize Event Appearance: You can style individual events by applying CSS classes or inline styles.


By following these steps, you can easily add a calendar to your Webflow website using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Remember to customize your calendar with the available options to suit your website’s design and functionality requirements.
