Solution 1

First: The valid DateTime string is
Second: Why are you change the DateTime object to string and back to DateTime?
Shouldn't be like this:
DGVCalendar.Rows[row].Cells[0].Value = dt1.ToShortDateString();

hi professional
basically "String was not recognized as a valid date time" error occurs when you did not putting right date time format.
so try this...
DGVCalendar.Rows[row].Cells[0].Value = Convert.ToDateTime(dt1.ToString("dd/MM/yyyy"));
and if it will not work properly then
for more date time formats see below link...[^]
Happy to help
