There aren't ads, just internal promotion, tips & tricks for using Google Calendar. If you remember, 10 years ago most applications had a tips dialog that opened at startup.

I know it's internal promotion, but their format is too similar to the new Google Maps ads and Gmail Webclips.

The tips can be turned off in your Calendar settings.
