Keep site visitors up-to-date at a glance by adding the Google calendar widget to your site. It is a great way to keep visitors engaged by showing them upcoming events, bookings, workshops, seminars and more. The widget provides a seamless integration of a public Google calendar and can be customized like any other widget.


  • This widget enables you to display public Google calendars only.
  • If you have added a calendar after connecting an account, the calendar may not appear in the calendar options. To display, disconnect and then reconnect the account.
  • The Google Calendar widget does not display multiday events.

To add the widget:

  1. In the left panel, click Widgets.
  2. Click and drag the Google calendar widget into your site.
