    After paying $89 for the Pro version of TEC and not getting any support I am ready to ditch it and get something else. My choices are limited to a list that is compatible with another plugin I am using. Here is the list of Calendars I can choose from:

    The Events Calendar
    Events manager
    All-in-One Event Calendar
    Event Organiser
    EventON
    My Calendar

    Which one(s) work best with Enfold?

    Hey compudean,

    Thank you for using Enfold.

    The theme has native configurations for TEC but none for the plugins listed above. Nevertheless, those plugins should work properly with the theme but they might require some modifications and/or adjustments, especially the template files.

    Best regards,
    Ismael

    [edit]
    I took another look at some of the page configuration tooling in Events Manager and it’s possible to use Avira layout shortcodes in their page configuration. This can be used to make the event page adhere to a basic Enfold layout.
    [/edit]

    I’ve successfully integrated Events Manager with Enfold on a couple of projects. It’s not super amazing but could be if I could reliably create an Enfold Page template that ditched the sidebar. Events Manager has a configurable way to target its Event Page to an existing page template from the theme, but Enfold only has two theme page templates: Archive and Blank, No Header No Footer. I really wish Enfold shipped with a stripped back full width page template that was basically a container for plugins like this.
    I once hacked in my own, but am not a developer and probably did it wrong.
    Example is here: https://www.trikids.ca/events/burnaby/

    I don’t know much about how wp works under the hood. If I can’t edit the page via editor I am at the mercy of the plugin. But I don’t have your issue as described with sidebars: http://www.hikingwithdean.com/events. I am importing events from Meetup.com using another plugin.

    I received a refund from Tribe (lack of support), but I will stick with free TEC since Enfold has native configuration for it and can probably answer most of my style questions

    Thanks for the update, so you are not looking for recommendations anymore since you are staying with TEC?
