I am trying to use a calendar control in an asp.net project. I have a situation where during the course of a month,  there may be several events that are happening, and I would like to make the days when those events are occuring to show in a different color on the calendar control.

How is this done?

You need to implement the calendar's DayRender event, accessing the Cell container from the EventArgs and comparing it to your list of dates.

Something like this:
Protected Sub Calendar1_DayRender( _
    ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.DayRenderEventArgs _
) Handles Calendar1.DayRender
 
    For Each dItem As Date in m_Dates
       If e.Day.Date.Equals(dItem) Then
          e.Cell.BackColor=Drawing.Color.Cyan
          Exit For
       End If
    End If
 
End Sub
