Try:
string selectStatement = "SELECT * FROM Events WHERE eventDate >= dateadd(day, -day(getdate()) + 1, cast(getdate() as date))"

The query still gets every eventDate from the database.

lets say I have got 5 eventDates in the database:

April 02
April 14
April 23
April 27
May  11

I want all eventDates that are greater than or = to todays date and eventdates that are in the same month as the current month displayed by the calendar.
IE if the calendar current month was April, than I would want the query to retrieve the below eventDates:

April 14
April 23
April 27

SELECT * FROM Events 
 WHERE eventDate >= cast(dateadd(day, -day(getdate()) + 1, getdate()) as date)
   AND eventDate < dateadd(month, 1, cast(dateadd(day, -day(getdate()) + 1, getdate()) as date))

The query is still not quite right, it is returning the eventDates:

April 02
April 14
April 23
April 27

When the calendars displayed month is April.

That seems correct to me.  It displays April dates when the month is April.  Please clarify.

OK. There you go:
SELECT * FROM Events 
 WHERE eventDate >= cast(getdate() as date)
   AND eventDate < dateadd(month, 1, cast(dateadd(day, -day(getdate()) + 1, getdate()) as date))
