The theme fully supports Events Calendar and Events Calendar Pro versions.

If you don't need the Events Calendar  plugin simply don't install it and all the features, codes and anything  required for the Event Calendar will not be loaded. Vice versa, if you  need to set up the Events Calendar just install it like you do with  other plugins. Once installed and activated, the Events Calendar menu will be added in the WordPress main navigation menu on the left.

 

Some of the functionality you see on the demo website is only supported by the Event Calendar pro, the Filter Bar and the Community Events paid add-ons. 

Here is detailed info what the Pro version includes in addition to the free Event Calendar version:
