Countdown Calculator to Create an
Online Timer for a Future Event

[ Skip to Calculator ] Calcy pointing down

The Countdown Calculator on this page will create a count down timer to a future event!

Simply enter the date and time of a future event and the countdown creator will generate a timer that will begin counting down to the event's date and time.

And not only will the calculator count down the time in years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds, but it will also give the total time stated in each of the latter time units.

Plus, you also have the option of having the calculator remember your event for future visits -- in which case the updated timer will magically appear at the top of this page without you having to enter anything or press any buttons (so long as you access the page from the same computer and web browser that you created the timer with).

Note that if you would like to create a timer that counts up from a past date and time, please visit the Count Up Timer.
