I think I misunderstand you, because a calendar has to show one box per 
day. If it shows more than one box per day, it loses its traditional 
shape and is hard to read.

Assuming you want to keep the traditional shape, you could add links 
from each day's page to a page for the event.

Multiple categories is easy.

To add a page to a category, or, rather, to add a category to a page, 
add a link from the page to the category page. [[Category/FirstCategory]].

[[!FirstCategory]] is a shorthand to do the same thing.

To add several categories to a page, just add more links.

The page Category/FirstCategory doesn't have to exist.

To find pages in a category, use

(:pagelist link=Category/FirstCategory :)

In the manual, it describes how to:

1. Add a line to config.php so that Category/FirstCategory will be 
created whenever someone adds it to a page, so you can make categories 
on the fly.

2. Add the (:pagelist link=....:) line to Category/GroupFooter, so if 
you go to the page Category/FirstCategory, you will see a list of all 
pages "in" that category.

Aside: Pages that refer to a Category page but aren't actually part of 
the category. (E.g. A homepage that says "See [[Category/Cats]] for my 
Cats page.") will still show on that list. There is a PITTS to change 
this, but it's not high on the list.
