Accessible datepicker?

This feels like it might be a frequently-asked question here, but I've not found anything recent; only some discussion about jQuery UI a couple of years ago. Forgive me if I missed something.

We're working on a form where the user will be required to select a date. Allowable dates will be constrained by a range (e.g. earliest is day after tomorrow; latest is 6 months from today) and closed days (which will vary according to a previous selection on the form - some locations are open weekends, some aren't). The form gets a fairly high number of international users and one-time users.

I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with this one:

(I like that it does some clever stuff like convert typed input "April 23" into the correct date format.)

Please share any other options you think are good.

Many thanks,
