On retail, the calendar is used to mark server-wide events, such as holidays, in its most general use. For players, you can create events, set them as public (everyone can view it), or make them private such that only guild members, Real ID names, or those character names you list can view the event. This is done through an invite system, where the characters you list will receive a mail informing them of the event. When a player opens the calendar and sees a player-created event listed, by clicking the event it will open a window giving details such as who created it, the location, start and ending times, and a list of all that are invited and whether they have accepted, declined, or given a tentative status. If you do not check the RSVP box when creating an event, then players do not have to respond if they are attending or not, but it is often used to get confirmation for filling out raids or battlegrounds. For official server events, say Brewfest, it will simply display an information window giving a general description and duration. As such, it is static and has no further function as the player-created events do.

So, no, the calendar is not another form of LFG finder, in the precise sense, but a more social method to create and schedule events for nearly every reason imaginable from birthdays to inviting all your friends to run ICC. Guilds will frequently use the calendar when setting up a raid, war game or other special event. The "Mass Invite" feature is especially useful by allowing a player to mass-mail everyone on the invite list, greatly facilitating the task of informing the other players.
