17+ Beautiful CSS calendars [Examples]
Calendars are extremely useful for so many things. We see them all the time in our email accounts, booking an appointment and scheduling meetings. As with some HTML inputs, there isn’t a default one for a fully working calendar, so you have to build one yourself with HTML and CSS.
Fortunately, in this article, we have prepared an amazing list of pre-built CSS calendars for you. You may use them for free and adapt them how you see fit. This is a collection of HTML and CSS calendars with varying features and styles.
Let’s jump right in!
Beautiful HTML+CSS Calendars You Can Use
You can switch between the months of the year and hover over each day in the month. It even increases in years as you switch through the months and you can go back and forth.
The CSS also has its own named variables, so it will be easy to edit the style and colors if you need to have them match your own branding.
An "upcoming event" based HTML and CSS calendar, this has some cool features to it. Firstly, the calendar has enough space to show 3 months overall, you can switch between another 3 months using the arrows and there are some example events that have been set.
By navigating to the next few months, you can see some example events in the calendar, select them to see the event details appear at the bottom. One day even has multiple events.
This CSS calendar is much bigger than a lot of the examples here, nearly full-screen and it looks stunning. Obviously, you could change the gradient background for something else or just take the calendar itself.
This calendar is based on a very popular and flexible CSS framework called Tailwind. From the example, you can see there is only a clean HTML structure and all the styling is done directly inline, using the Tailwind CSS classes.
Tailwind is a frontend CSS framework that is fantastic for building UI and styling different elements, as you can see from this example, it looks very professional.
A pure HTML and CSS calendar only. No functionality, but it has some cool effects to which you can add functionality. Such as the hover effects on the numbers and the fact that you can actually select and deselect numbers as well.
You can get other ideas for the hover effects by checking these 10 CSS Button Hover Effects.
As an example, the number 18 is selected and you can see this by the surrounding circle, but you can also select it again as well.
The arrows to switch the months don’t work but they have subtle hover effects on them which is nice to see.
Based on Tailwind and AlpineJS, here we have a really lovely example of a functioning CSS calendar, with lots of great features already built-in for you.
For starters, you can switch between the months, the current day is preselected for you, showing you which is the current day. By clicking on a number, you can create a new event for that day.
Upon event creation, it is saved into the HTML and displayed as an event. No edit button but you could easily add this. And it would not take much to extract the event data and send it off to a server.
Bootstrap is a popular CSS UI framework and here we have a fantastic example of what you can do with it.
A year based calendar which is using the whole screen to display everything. The years can be switched between using the main arrows and there are some example events that you can hover over to see a short description.
Something a little different but very useful and interesting. Still a type of calendar but it only shows the date and the month.
This type of CSS calendar is useful for displaying at the start of a blog post or article, using it as a way to show the date posted. It is very easy to change the date and month in the HTML.
A CSS calendar icon based on the Tailwind CSS framework.
Very useful for showing a date in a specific area on a page, this one even has a nice section to show the time for an event and it looks very modern and minimal.
A year based calendar in pure HTML and CSS. Great for displaying a whole year in a big format.
An interesting way to approach this but, you can clearly see how the JS class generates the tables and turns the calendar into a yearly calendar. A great resource to learn from!
A wonderful and very colourful calendar built with only HTML and CSS.
It has some very cool features and effects, transitions, and sliding animations between some of the months.
A beautiful column-based calendar that is using CSS grid as the solution to display this compared to something like CSS flexbox.
The CSS even has nice variables that you can use to change the styling and colors of the elements.
A cool semi-working calendar with a flip animation that transitions to a view and you can add a calendar event.
This needs some extra functionality added to it, like saving the new event and displaying it on the calendar but the template and structure are there.
15. Calendar Widget
A widget looking calendar that has a compact size. Easily edit the styling options in the CSS with the variables to match your branding.
Not fully functional but a good template, click the dates and a nice little text box slides out which could be used to add an event.
No functionality at all but this is such a great template and UI that you can add functionality to. It has many elements laid out that you can add functionality to, like the year switcher, the day's event indicator, and all the information on the left side.
A modern and slick-looking calendar icon, great for blogs and at the start of an article.
This example is even a working clock as well, hover over the date and then click it and hold to see the time.
Neat and fully working, which is nice to see.
Modern and minimal calendar with some fancy CSS animations.
Click the month switching arrows and watch the smooth animation change between the months, clicking the dot in the middle goes back to the current date and month.
