    I have created a Calendar custom widget that uses the Events scheduled in Sitefinity. The custom Widget was designed using jQuery Full Calendar. This custom widget will be used in two different sites using a drop down list to allow user to select content site in the designer. Currently my designed only list one site, but there are two sites to pull content from, One is the Default Web Site, the other is the Sitefinity Clic Website. My code is as follows in the back end of the designer.


     class EventProvider
                public string ProviderName { get; set; }
                public string SiteName { get; set; }
            #region Methods
            protected override void InitializeControls(Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.GenericContainer container)
                // Place your initialization logic here
                // initialize the taxonomy selectors
                CategoriesSelector.TaxonomyId = TaxonomyManager.CategoriesTaxonomyId;
                TagsSelector.TaxonomyId = TaxonomyManager.TagsTaxonomyId;
                var multisiteContext = SystemManager.CurrentContext as MultisiteContext;
                var sites = multisiteContext.GetSites().FirstOrDefault().Name;
                var providers = GetProviders(typeof(EventsManager).FullName);
                DropDownList SiteList = (DropDownList)this.dataSourceName;
                foreach(var p in providers)

            IEnumerable<EventProvider> GetProviders(string dataSourceName)
                var sn = SystemManager.CurrentContext.CurrentSite.SiteDataSourceLinks;
                return SystemManager.CurrentContext.CurrentSite.SiteDataSourceLinks
                    .Where(o => o.DataSourceName == dataSourceName)
                    .Select(o => new EventProvider
                            ProviderName = o.ProviderName,
                            SiteName = ((MultisiteContext)SystemManager.CurrentContext).GetSiteById(o.SiteId).Name

    You can use the approach described in this post to get the providers for the different sites:
