Hi Mikko,

You could achieve the desired behavior by using the navigate method of the Calendar in the DatePicker component:

$("#datepicker").kendoDatePicker({
      open: function() {
        var calendar = this.dateView.calendar;
        calendar.navigate(new Date(2023, 0, 1), "month");
       }
});

As you can observe from the above code snippet, in the open event of the component, I am accessing the calendar from the dateView of the DatePicker and then navigating to the desired month by setting a corresponding Date() object as the first parameter of the method. 

Below is a simple Dojo example, demonstrating the described approach:

Let me know if the proposed suggestion is suitable for your scenario.
