    I use the Agenda+ Widget since the stock iOS calendar widget is incapable of showing all day and future events in the widget...

    Yesterday I noticed it started showing “No Events”.

    After some troubleshooting with the dev, this actually seems to be a problem with Apple’s iCloud service. In the Calendar app under other, there is now an Untitled Calendar where I believe it was previously Holidays. You cannot delete this calendar, but there is a work around that removes it, and happens to fix my Agenda widget.

    Settings>General>Language & Region> change your region. Since I’m in the United States, changing it to U.S. Virgin Islands worked. I’m not sure if other regions are experiencing this issue.

    I just ran into this myself and have read the developer FAQ about it at http://support.jeeeyul.net/#!faq/show/dGgxan9ohrbeE2yGc which essentially describes what you mention. The solutions there didn't work for me unfortunately.

    It's interesting/strange that it shows up even if that calendar isn't selected to be shown/used. What did work for me as a workaround of sorts is to disable the display of all day events, seems like something related to that (and some calendar most likely) is causing some issues.

    Hopefully Apple will fix what's going on with their Holiday calendar, and at the same time the developer will update the app to handle a weird case like this one to prevent it from interfereing from how the app and its widget work.

    What the developer suggested is to change regions, then change back. It fixes it temporarily, but then the untitled calendar comes back.

    What fixes it for me is to change my region and keep it on U.S. Virgin Islands. But then I lose the News app...

    Yeah, I tried that. Changing the region to something that doesn't have the Holiday calendar associated with it seems to do the trick, but changing back seems to bring back that calendar with its "untitled" name and the same problem that that seems to cause with this app and its widget.

    For now it's basically the disabling all day events workaround that I have to go with to see most of my events (sacrificing the visibility of all day ones). Hopefully it's temporarily until the developer updates the app to handle it all, and Apple fixes their Holiday calendar.

    If you hear anything else from the developer in relation to this, could you please share it here? It'd be good to see if there's progress being made in addressing this in some fashion.

    From the dev:

    We have fully identified the problem, and an update will be available soon. (within few days).

    Lots of diagnostic data and feedback about this problem were reported, and they were extremely helpful. The holiday calendar which is subscribed automatically by iOS causes this problem. For some reason, iCloud calendar server provides holiday calednars without correct title. (Not always) A new update can handle invalid calendars without error.

    Looks like the update just became available in the App Store, and seems like it resolves the issue.
