I'm trying to peice together a personal calendar.  For part of that, I'd like to have recurring days for my more important theoi.  I have a list together of 24 (being two 12s).  It's an attempt to ensure that I... maintain connections with the theoi.  I only regularly offer nightly to Them en masse, and I'd like to expand that.

Other than the Hellenic Month Established Per Athens, are there any calendars that specify recurring dates for individual theoi?  So far, my assigning of the Them is going to be rather arbitrary.  If another calendar exists, I'd like to make that arbitration historical.

The words and phrases I know don't get much returned from Google, and those that use a montly calendar, use the HMEPA.

The only complete calendars I'm aware of are for Athens. Historically, many dates varied by city -- and some festivals were limited to particular cites as well. Unless you live in Athens or some other (then) Greek city where the dates are known, picking the dates yourself would be no more historical than using the dates for a city you don't live in, IMHO.

Ruadhan's been working on a Boeotian calendar.  I don't know a whole lot about it, but at a glance it looked like it included monthly recurring things as well as annual festivals.

Some brief info on the project:

Thank you.  I had forgotten he had a calendar.

He adds the 9th for the Muses, Tyche and the Fates on the 5th, the unlucky day.

Cool - potentially useful as I consider adding a bit more structure/schedule to my devotions.

<follows links.  Discovers Ruadhan beyond just calendar-(re)construction.  Squees.>

Thank you so much, Star; this is clearly someone I want to read more of!
