You can set the property of font of calendar control as you required.

<asp:Calendar ID="Calendar1" runat="server"  
           SelectionMode="Day" 
           ShowGridLines="True"
           OnSelectionChanged="Selection_Change" Font-Bold="True" Font-Size="5pt">
 
         <SelectedDayStyle BackColor="Yellow"
                           ForeColor="Red">
         </SelectedDayStyle>
      
      </asp:Calendar>

Label1.Text = "The selected date is " + Calendar1.SelectedDate.ToShortDateString();

just the reverse of the above.  Like the calendar1.??=Label1.Text;
