  1. Download CalendarBundle using composer
  2. Create the subscriber
  3. Add styles and scripts in your template

1. Download CalendarBundle using composer

$ composer require tattali/calendar-bundle

The recipe will import the routes for you

Check the existence of the file config/routes/calendar.yaml or create it

# config/routes/calendar.yaml
    resource: "@CalendarBundle/Resources/config/routing.yaml"

2. Create the subscriber

You need to create a subscriber class to load your data into the calendar.

This subscriber must be registered only if autoconfigure is false.

# config/services.yaml
    # ...


Then, create the subscriber class to fill the calendar

See the doctrine subscriber example

// src/EventSubscriber/CalendarSubscriber.php

namespace App\EventSubscriber;

use CalendarBundle\CalendarEvents;
use CalendarBundle\Entity\Event;
use CalendarBundle\Event\CalendarEvent;
use Symfony\Component\EventDispatcher\EventSubscriberInterface;

class CalendarSubscriber implements EventSubscriberInterface
    public static function getSubscribedEvents()
        return [
            CalendarEvents::SET_DATA => 'onCalendarSetData',

    public function onCalendarSetData(CalendarEvent $calendar)
        $start = $calendar->getStart();
        $end = $calendar->getEnd();
        $filters = $calendar->getFilters();

        // You may want to make a custom query from your database to fill the calendar

        $calendar->addEvent(new Event(
            'Event 1',
            new \DateTime('Tuesday this week'),
            new \DateTime('Wednesdays this week')

        // If the end date is null or not defined, it creates a all day event
        $calendar->addEvent(new Event(
            'All day event',
            new \DateTime('Friday this week')

Basic functionalities

You will probably want to customize the Calendar javascript to fit the needs of your application. To do this, you can copy the following settings and modify them by consulting the fullcalendar.js documentation. You can also look at the options.ts file as an option reference.

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', () => {
    var calendarEl = document.getElementById('calendar-holder');

    var calendar = new FullCalendar.Calendar(calendarEl, {
        defaultView: 'dayGridMonth',
        editable: true,
        eventSources: [
                url: "/fc-load-events",
                method: "POST",
                extraParams: {
                    filters: JSON.stringify({})
                failure: () => {
                    // alert("There was an error while fetching FullCalendar!");
        header: {
            left: 'prev,next today',
            center: 'title',
            right: 'dayGridMonth,timeGridWeek,timeGridDay',
        plugins: [ 'interaction', 'dayGrid', 'timeGrid' ], // https://fullcalendar.io/docs/plugin-index
        timeZone: 'UTC',
