Creating a Calendar in Bootstrap

If you want to create a calendar in Bootstrap, you have a few different options. Here are a few ways to accomplish this:

1. Use a Bootstrap Calendar Plugin

One easy way to create a calendar in Bootstrap is to use a pre-made plugin. There are several different calendar plugins available, such as:

  • Bootstrap Calendar
  • FullCalendar
  • jQuery UI Datepicker

To use one of these plugins, you'll need to include the necessary files in your HTML and initialize the plugin with JavaScript. Each plugin will have its own documentation that you can follow.

2. Create Your Own Custom Calendar Using Bootstrap Components

If you prefer more control over the look and functionality of your calendar, you can build it yourself using Bootstrap components. Here's an example of how to create a simple monthly calendar:

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
    <div class="col-md-12">
      <table class="table table-bordered">
            <th colspan="7" class="text-center">Month/Year</th>
          <tr class="text-center">

In this example, we're using Bootstrap's grid system to create a container, row, and column. We're then creating a table with a header row and a body of table cells for the days of the month. You can customize this table with your own styles and JavaScript to add functionality like event handling.

3. Use a Third-Party Library

If you need more advanced features in your calendar, there are several third-party libraries that you can use with Bootstrap. Some popular options include:

  • FullCalendar
  • Scheduler
  • DayPilot

These libraries often have a steeper learning curve than pre-made plugins or creating your own custom calendar, but they offer more powerful features like drag-and-drop event scheduling and integration with databases or APIs.


Creating a calendar in Bootstrap is possible using a variety of techniques. Whether you choose to use a pre-made plugin, create your own custom calendar, or use a third-party library, there are many options available to suit your needs.
