You can't get an always-on calendar on your display currently, but I've outlined some functionality below that you may wish to set up. 
 
If you've set up a Family group with Google, you'll automatically get a Family calendar. You can then use a combination of the Family calendar and multiple other shared calendars (not necessarily shared with the same group as the Family calendar) to share information according to your wishes.
 
Sharing Calendars for use with Google Nest devices
Ensure all the individuals in your household that will need access to the shared calendars have a Google Account. Each of the individuals will also need Voice Match set up in order to be able to add Calendar events and request Calendar information.
 
For each individual's account, you'll need to ensure all the Calendars you wish the Google Assistant to have access to are selected within the Google Home app:
  1. Open the Google Home app MrVacca_0-1630696220021.png

     

    .
  2. In the bottom right corner of the Home screen, tap Account MrVacca_1-1630696220039.png

     

    .
  3. Verify that the Google Account that is listed is the one linked to Google Home.  To switch accounts, click the triangle to the right of the account name.
  4. Tap Settings MrVacca_2-1630696220060.png

     Calendar.
  5. Under “Your calendars,” the main Google Calendar associated with the Google Account and voice linked to Google Home is checked by default.
  6. Check the box next to other shared calendars you want to hear events for.
You may also like to review Set and manage reminders.

Hi Kenadman,

 

Thanks for your reply back! Sorry that your question was not answered. 

 

Unfortunately, there is not a way/feature to keep a calendar constantly displayed. However, your device will display that day's event in the home screen on the main tab. You will tap the screen, and that main tab will pop up with a list of events you have. 

 

Also, if you click on the 'discover' tab, there is section titled 'what's on my calendar?' that you could also look at. Voice commands will also temporarily show your events for the day. Just a heads up, when you command the device to tell you about your events, it will only give information for your first 3 scheduled events.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. I'm here to help!

Tap Assistant settings Calendar. Under “Your calendars,” the main Google Calendar associated with the Google Account and voice linked to your speaker or display is checked by default. Check the box next to other shared calendars you want to get events for.

Hi

thank you.  While the previous answer was helpful it is not fully addressing my ask. In the pre-tech world family's would have white board month calendars on the wall to show all events. Trying to replicate Thst in the digital world with the max hub. I would like to visually see my weekly )or monthly) calendar upon google request (show me my weekly calendar). Is there a way or an app to do it?  I suppose I could just put my iPad out in the kitchen with the google calendar app but was hoping the google max could do it somehow.
