ACF, WP Query, WP/CP | Type: PHPWP_query with Events Grouped by Month

This is intriguing, but I’ve not tested it. Check the 2 links given with this solution at the source link.

<?php
  $period = date("Y-m-d");
  $args = array(
  'post_type'=>'event',
  'posts_per_page'=> -1,
  'order'=> 'DESC',
  'orderby'=> 'meta_value',    
  'meta_key'=>'event_start_date'
  'meta_value' => $period,
 )

 $events = new WP_Query( $args ); 
if ($events->have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post();

    the_title();
    // (etc.)

    endwhile;
endif; 
?>
