    I use Telerik WinForm DateTimePicker.
    I can customize it with below code:
    Font headerFont = new Font( "Arial", 9.0f, FontStyle.Bold );Font datesFont = new Font( "Arial", 9.0f, FontStyle.Italic );RadDateTimePickerCalendar calendarBehavior = this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.GetCurrentBehavior() as RadDateTimePickerCalendar;RadCalendar calendar = calendarBehavior.Calendar as RadCalendar;RadCalendarElement calendarElement = calendar.CalendarElement as RadCalendarElement; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.Font = headerFont; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.ForeColor = Color.Yellow; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor = Color.White; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor2 = Color.Gray; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor3 = Color.DarkGray; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor4 = Color.Gainsboro; calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BorderColor = Color.DarkGray;MonthViewElement monthView = calendarBehavior.Calendar.CalendarElement.CalendarVisualElement as MonthViewElement;foreach ( RadItem item in monthView.TableElement.Children ){ item.Font = datesFont;}int outint;foreach ( CalendarCellElement cell in ( ( MonthViewElement ) calendarBehavior.Calendar.CalendarElement.Children[ 0 ].Children[ 2 ] ).TableElement.Children ){if ( !int.TryParse( cell.Text, out outint ) ){ cell.Font = new Font( this.radDateTimePicker1.Font.FontFamily, 12 );}}

    Hello Barak,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can refer to the following documentation article demonstrating how the elements in RadDateTimePicker can be customized: The elements in the popup of the navigation element are created dynamically and their Font property cannot be accessed. If you set the HeaderNavigationMode to zoom you will be able to change the font of the calendar cells by handling the ZoomChanged event: 
    public partial class RadForm1 : Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadForm
        public RadForm1()
        Font datesFont = new Font("Arial", 9.0f, FontStyle.Italic);
        protected override void OnShown(EventArgs e)
            Font headerFont = new Font("Arial", 12.0f, FontStyle.Bold);
            RadDateTimePickerCalendar calendarBehavior = this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.GetCurrentBehavior() as RadDateTimePickerCalendar;
            RadCalendar calendar = calendarBehavior.Calendar as RadCalendar;
            RadCalendarElement calendarElement = calendar.CalendarElement as RadCalendarElement;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.Font = headerFont;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.ForeColor = Color.Yellow;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor = Color.White;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor2 = Color.Gray;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor3 = Color.DarkGray;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BackColor4 = Color.Gainsboro;
            calendarElement.CalendarNavigationElement.BorderColor = Color.DarkGray;
            MonthViewElement monthView = calendarBehavior.Calendar.CalendarElement.CalendarVisualElement as MonthViewElement;
            foreach (RadItem item in monthView.TableElement.Children)
                item.Font = datesFont;
            this.radDateTimePicker1.DateTimePickerElement.Calendar.HeaderNavigationMode = HeaderNavigationMode.Zoom;
            calendar.ZoomChanged += Calendar_ZoomChanged;
        private void Calendar_ZoomChanged(object sender, CalendarZoomChangedEventArgs e)
            RadCalendar calendar = sender as RadCalendar;
            MonthViewElement monthView = calendar.CalendarElement.CalendarVisualElement as MonthViewElement;
            foreach (RadItem item in monthView.TableElement.Children)
                item.Font = datesFont;

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions.
