Tell me, is there a SharePoint calendar with normal events, how to implement it so that when a date or date + time arrives in the calendar, would the email be sent to the user?

You can achieve it by creating SharePoint designer workflow, using Pause until Date action.

Set Start workflow automatically when an item is created/changed:

The solution is possible in 2 ways, code C# (Custom Timer Job) or Powershell. I did through Powershell and create New Event Windows Task scheduler, repeate task every 5 minutes:

if(!(Get-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction:SilentlyContinue)) { 
Add-PsSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell 
$web = Get-SPWeb http://sps/sites/test
$list = $web.Lists["Calendar"]
$items = $list.items 
foreach($item in $items) {
if($item["EventDate"] -ne "") {
$CurrentDate = (Get-Date)
$StartDate = $item["EventDate"]
$EndDate = $item["EndDate"]
if(($StartDate -le $CurrentDate) -and ($EndDate -ge $CurrentDate) -and ($item["Trigger"] -ne "Yes")) {
$Author = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldUserValue($web, $item["User"])
$CUserEmail = $Author.user.Email
$Server = "mail.server.com"
$From = "[email protected]"
$To = $CUserEmail
$Subject = $item["Title"]
$Body =  "<html><body><p><b>Date Start: </b>" +  $item["EventDate"].ToString("dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm") + "<p><b>Date End: </b>" +  $item["EndDate"].ToString('dd.MM.yyyy HH:mm') + "<p><a href='http://sps/sites/test/_layouts/15/start.aspx#/Lists/List/calendar.aspx'>Event reference in calendar</a>" + "</body></html>"
$SmtpClient = New-Object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
$Message = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
$SmtpClient.Host = $Server
$Message.IsBodyHtml = $True
$Message.From = $From
$Message.Subject = $Subject
$Message.Body = $Body
$item["Trigger"] = "Yes"
} else {
Write-Host "False"
