I have the following page code and while the HTMLEditor textarea for the second field displays, the label for it does not. Attached is my page code and the edit interface screenshot.

HTMLEditorFields and TextareaFields don't seem to show a title unless you specify one, which is acutally pretty handy if you want a bigger space to edit in.
Adding a title parameter to HTMLEditorField will do what you want:

function getCMSFields() {
	$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

	$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new HTMLEditorField('Sidebar', 'Sidebar'), 'Content');
	$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new CalendarDateField('Date'), 'Content');

	return $fields;

Thanks, that seems to have done it.
