    Are you referring to the Date field?

    There is a way to limit the dates that would only show on the date field's calendar pop-up. 

    Here's how:

    Thank you for the clarification. Yes, it is possible show and hide a particular field on a particular date. You can use the Show/Hide Condition to accomplish this with a date field.

    If you do not wish users to select a date, you can just place today's date by default

    You just need to create the following condition. When the user select a date or is the dates in question, the text will display or be hidden.

    I have created a small sample form that you may review, clone and analyze as you like.
