Does Plone 3.0 come with event calendaring OOB? Or will we need to add a
product like Plone4Artists Calendar (which is not yet Plone 3.0

It looks like CalendarX which we have been using since 2.0.5 is not
compatible with Plone v3.0.

That means you demo'd it.

Create a Plone 3.0 site from scratch.

Advantages straight off the release page:

     * Full versioning support, history and reverting to older revisions
     * Improved performance
     * Inline (Ajax) editing
     * Link and reference integrity checking
     * Automatic locking and unlocking
     * Improved handling of permissions and sharing
     * Upgraded visual (WYSIWYG) content editor
     * Full-text indexing of Word and PDF documents
     * Wiki support and multiple new mark-up formats
     * Rules engine for content
     * Strengthened security

Top 20 reasons:


Another reason: there is general community support for the last two 
releases. As soon as 3.5 comes out, nobody will give a hoot at 2.5.3. 
Old sites should be tested and stable by then.

Is there any other way?

"Move" meaning, if you have any customizations to move, have them 
wrapped up in products or modules.
