View/ Filter Options on jquery Calendar

Hi All,
I have a Visualforce Tab that is a jquery calendar pulling dates from different objects.
I would like to be able to make different views on this or filter in some way so that users can pick to only look at dates by owner or by department and so on. Much like creating list views.
Any help in adding this feature would me much appreciated

<apex:page controller="CalendarExample_Controller" action="{!pageLoad}">
    <apex:relatedList list="CalendarExample_Controller" />

        //We need to wrap everything in a doc.ready function so that the code fires after the DOM is loaded

        $(document).ready(function() {   

            //Call the fullCallendar method. You can replace the '#calendar' with the ID of the dom element where you want the calendar to go. 


                header: {

                    left: 'prev,next today',

                    center: 'title',

The data is send to fullcalendar using the 'events' wrapper list.

you can crete a select list with the list of 'list view' options and onchange of the picklist value call the method 'pageLoad'.

in the pageload function, check for the picklist value and assign events accordingly and update the fullcalendar.

Hi Sanjay.George,
Thank you so much for your response, this is a little over my head and I’m pretty lost. Would you be able to provide me of an example of the code that is needed?
Thank you again!
