EventCalendar for Umbraco 7

EventCalendar for Umbraco is a package that lets you create and manage calendar, locations, organiser and events. You can create one-time, recurring or anniversary events. Locations and Organiser can be reused from different events. It has it's own security settings to let you define which of your users are allowed to edit specific entities.

Version 3.0.0-RC and above can be used for free on localhost with a trial license.

A license can be purchased via website https://davidbrendel.de.



You can either download the package here or install it via nuget. The package comes with multiple document types. It is necessary that the detail pages are placed under the calendar node for the package to work right. Also, activate the newly created section for the users that should have access to it. The URLs for event/location/organiser details are build by convention and can be redirected using URL rewriting.



  • Since version 3.1.0 the package needs an update of the Newtonsoft.Json library to version 7.0.1!
  • For version 3.5.0 the permissions for user are now managed through user groups. You have to set them again.
  • Data imported from json file has to be allowed for users to appear in the trees. There is currently no automatic mapping.



If you find any bugs report them on the forums below, on the issue tracker https://gitlab.com/Mantus/EventCalendar/issues or write me at bugs at davidbrendel.de
