Show upcoming events from The Events Calendar

You can use Display Posts Shortcode to list upcoming events from The Events Calendar.

Add the code below to your theme or core functionality plugin, then display events like this: 

* Display Posts Shortcode - Only query future events
* @author Bill Erickson
* @see
* @param array $args
* @param array $atts
* @return array $args
function be_dps_future_events( $args, $atts ) {
// Only run on event queries
if( 'tribe_events' != $args['post_type'] )
return $args;
$args['order'] = 'ASC';
$args['orderby'] = 'meta_value';
$args['meta_key'] = '_EventStartDate';
$args['meta_type'] = 'DATETIME';
$args['meta_query'] = array(
'key' => '_EventStartDate',
'value' => date( 'Y-m-d H:i:s', current_time( 'timestamp' ) ),
'compare' => '>'
) );
return $args;
add_filter( 'display_posts_shortcode_args', 'be_dps_future_events', 10, 2 );
