Is there a way to get macOS to display the current calendar week in the menu bar, maybe as part of the date or as an additional information elsewhere in the menu bar?

I use Itsycal by Mowglii (I'm not affiliated with the company or software). It's free, open source, and allows you to format the displayed date/time many different ways.

    Likewise, if it was a good question it's easier to spot it for others if it has a vote ;-) Oct 12, 2018 at 19:19

You can use Day-O calendar app to display custom date format in menubar. In Day-O preferences add w for the week of year.
