Are you looking for a decent WordPress calendar plugin to replace the default calendar in WordPress? Maybe you have an event site and want to give your visitors an easier way to keep up with your events. Whatever the case, there is a plugin for you out there. You can use calendar plugins to share information more effectively with your visitors, add an event calender to WordPress, and even let people bookmark your events.

If you need a killer calendar on your blog, here are 15 WordPress calendar plugins you should check out:

Calendar Press: adds an event calendar to WordPress. Google Maps, directions, a RSVP system are integrated in this plugin.

CGM Event Calendar: a sophisticated calendar for WordPress that lets you add classes, events, and all kinds of information to it. Makes it easy for your visitors to print your calendar too.

Event Calendar / Scheduler: a dynamic calendar which provides Ajax-based scheduling solution similar to Microsoft Outlook Calendar, Apple’s iCal or Google Calendar on your WordPress website. Unfortunately, not compatible with WPMU.

  • Nice review and love this site overall. Which one of these calendar plugins is the best for managing recurring events? I am using 'Calendar' presently but recurring event handling cumbersome. We need something with flexibility to cancel or edit one instance of a recurring event (like Web Calendar). Any advice appreciated.
