I am looking for a calendar to put into my PHP website that will show three months at a time. preferrably in a row - not in a column.
Event names would show up on the calendar and then click on it to display the actual event details.
Perfect calendar would allow me to make sunday's and holidays red to show they are closed

you'd have to get into the source code...I can't do that from here, could only offer a suggestion :) There's gotta be some simple parameter to change to pick a starting month, then simply add the calendar 3 times in a row (table)

Calendars are one of the most-written applications in all of computer science.  If you cannot find one that is immediately useful for your needs, expect to spend some time writing or customizing.  There are literally thousands of examples on the WWW.  Amazingly there are even web sites that specialize in collecting PHP calendar scripts!
http://lmgtfy.com?q=php+website+calendar

At its core, the table that defines a general purpose calendar needs three things: A key (or event title), a starting DATETIME and an ending DATETIME.  A resource scheduling calendar needs a fourth - the resource ID.

All the rest is fluff, but that is what makes it beautiful.  Many of the PHP CMS systems and frameworks have calendars of their own.  jQuery has some nice calendar features.  So if you're using Drupal or Wordpress, look for calendar plug-ins.  It will save you a lot of time!

Best of luck with it, ~Ray
