Example of Calendar with Events Listed in React Native

This is an Example of Calendar with Events Listed in React Native. To make a Calendar with Events in React Native we have a EventCalendar component provided by react-native-events-calendar.

In this example, you can add the events in a calendar using an event array. You just need to pass the date and time (or some other elements if you want) of the event as a JSON array and this will show you all the events on the calendar. You can use click on the calendar event to get the further details of the event.


In this example of Calendar with Events, we will make a calendar with some event listed from a dummy event array. If you want you can use web-services to fetch the data as an array from the server and pass that array in events prop of  EventCalendar. So Let’s get started.

To Make a React Native App

Getting started with React Native will help you to know more about the way you can make a React Native project. We are going to use react-native init to make our React Native App. Assuming that you have node installed, you can use npm to install the react-native-cli command line utility. Open the terminal and go to the workspace and run
npm install -g react-native-cli
Run the following commands to create a new React Native project
react-native init ProjectName
This will make a project structure with an index file named App.js in your project directory.

Installation of Dependency

To use EventCalendar component you need to install react-native-events-calendar package.

To install this Open the terminal and jump into your project

Run the following command

This command will copy all the dependencies into your node_module directory. –save is optional, it is just to update the react-native-events-calendar dependancy in your package.json file.

Dependency Version for this Example Used is

Now Open App.js in any code editor and replace the code with the following code.


To Run the React Native App

Open the terminal again and jump into your project using.
cd ProjectName
To run the project on an Android Virtual Device or on real debugging device
react-native run-android
or on the iOS Simulator by running
react-native run-ios (macOS only).

  1. Hi

    This is great work thanks

    Would it be possible to click to chose a specific month rather than flicking through too many pages to for example from June to December?

    Your help will be much appreciated.
