Hi,
 
First: The valid DateTime string is
 
yyyy-MM-dd.
 
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...
