Upcoming Events Lists


A WordPress plugin to show a list of upcoming events on the front-end as widget.

After installing and activating the plugin, a new custom post type called “Events” will appear at your WordPress Admin area.

If you are using block editor, add a new page and search for ‘Upcoming Events Lists’, set necessary options as your requirement.
Save and view you page. All done!

Step 3: Shortcode (When you cannot use step 2)
Add a new page and paste the following shortcode where you want to display the events:


The shortcode can include following attributes.

  • view_type: Default value list. Value can be list or grid.

I noticed that after installing it shows up as Event plugin in dashboard. When you try to create an event it shows up the title All in one events . If you have installed All in one events by Timely, then this widget picksup randomly events from that All in one events calendar. I was looking for a second event calendar on my website and so this event calendar is not helping as I mentioned , it picks and lists events from All in one Events Calendar randomly. Also this event calendar has disabled start time and end time that you see on All-in One calendar. I suggest you consider the original all-in-one calendar by Timely instead of this less functional calendar because the security updates done on All-in-one calendar may not get carried over to this new plugin. Fortunately when I deleted this calendar, it did not delete the events in my All- in-one calendar.
