    Hi,

     

    More information would be helpful.

     

    What version of iCal are you using?

    What happens when you try to delete an event?

    What have you tried to fix it?

    Is it only one event or all events this is an issue for?

    Where are the events stored, locally, on iCloud or another server calendar?

    Are the events set up by you or invites by others? You cannot delete the latter, at least not that I know of.

         It is obviously awhile back since the question was posted, but I ran into the same problem just yesterday. For purpose of this discussion, I will assume the problem is that of deleting calendars from an iOS device. You should be able to delete your own created event by tapping on the event, then scroll all the way to the bottom of the edit dialog window and tap "Delete Event". To delete your own created calendar, tap on "Calendars" tab at top left of opened iCal app (on iPad). Then tap on "Edit" tab in the dialog window that comes up. Then tap on calendar you wish to delete. Go to bottom of "Edit Calendar" dialog window and tap on "Delete Calendar".

         The above directions will likely NOT work to delete a "subscribed" calendar. I tried, and the calendar kept coming back like a bad habit. It appears that subscribed calendars need to be deleted via iOS settings. Tap on iOS "Settings" icon, then tap on settings for "Mail, Contacts, Calendars". Under the heading "Accounts", find, and tap on "Subscribed Calendars". Then tap on the calendar you wish to delete. Scroll to the bottom of that calendar's dialog window, and tap "Delete Account". This worked for me.
