How can I quickly navigate to a given date, say, a past date about 2 years ago, in Google Calendar?

Currently have have to click on the previous month button about 20 times. I have tried entering dates / months / years in the search box without effect. Is there a better way?

You can simply press g which will bring up a "Go to date" dialog.

This is native and doesn't rely on Google Labs or G Suite. Maybe this was part of the Google Labs beta and was merged into the main product, or maybe it was there all along.

Press ? to pop up a list of other helpful keyboard shortcuts.


In Google Calendar labs you can enable the Jump to date feature. It will allow you to jump to any date in seconds.

  • As somebody else pointed out, Google Labs is no longer available in the free calendar. However, you can press g for the "Go to date" dialog, which is super handy.

Another option... Type in the URL bar of your browser:
where YYYY/MM/DD is the date you want to jump to.

For example:


Unfortunately Google Labs is no longer available to non-G Suite users. To jump to a specific remote date, you can do the following:

  1. Create an event on that day you want to jump to
  2. Delete that event after you are directed to that day.
