SS3: Show Date Picker in CMS datagrid

I have a datagrid allowing the user to add events to an event page.

On it, I have 2 date fields so they can specify a start and end date. These fields do not show the date picker unless I comment out a line from DateField.js in Sapphire/javascript (line 12 - if(!config.showcalendar) return;).

Is there anyway to get the date picker to show without tampering with the core?

class Event extends DataObject{
   public static $db = array(
      'Title' => 'Varchar(255)',
      'StartDate' => 'Date',
      'EndDate' => 'Date',
      'Summary' => 'Text',
      'Content' => 'HTMLText'

   static $has_one = array(
      'WhatsOnCategory' => 'WhatsOnCategory',
      'EventImage' => 'Image'

   public static $summary_fields = array(
      'Title' => 'Title'
   public static $default_sort='StartDate';

   public function getCMSFields() {
       return new FieldList(
          new TextField('Title', 'Title'),
          new DateField('StartDate', 'StartDate'),
          new DateField('EndDate', 'EndDate'),
          new TextField('Summary', 'Summary'),
          new HTMLEditorField('Content', 'Content'),
          new UploadField('EventImage','Image')

public function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = array();

   $fields[] = new TextField('Title', 'Title');
   $fields['StartDate'] = new DateField('StartDate', 'StartDate');
   $fields['StartDate']->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
   $fields['EndDate'] = new DateField('EndDate', 'EndDate');
   $fields['EndDate']->setConfig('showcalendar', true);
   $fields[] = new TextField('Summary', 'Summary');
   $fields[] = new HTMLEditorField('Content', 'Content');
   $fields[] = new UploadField('EventImage','Image');

   return new FieldList($fields);
