    The 'publish' option applies only to 'On My Mac' calendars, not iCloud calendars, and produces a posted file which has to be viewed using a CalDAV server - an ordinary web server will just show it as a text file with the information layed out confusingly. Since the demise of MobileMe, which used to do this easily, there are few if any such servers (it's rather expected that you will host one yourself but this is is a rather technical matter).

     

    However if you have a calendar on iCloud you can share it privatelyh or publicly: the latter can be seen by anyone but they need a CalDAV clients to view it - iCal is one such, and Google Calendar is another, so this is going to be your best option. They will need a Google account - effectively they subscribe to it. Please see

    You can't publish a calendar to Google because it's not a server. You have to publish to a server, like publishing a web page, but an ordinary website server won't display the file as a calendar. Google can subscribe to a published or shared calendar, so you can share an iCloud calendar and subscribe to it in Google: what you suggest is the reverse process which is just as effective.

    Apologies for intruding on the conversation, but I noticed your last reply mentioned paying for iCloud. My recollection was that it's free service with at least 5 or was it 10GB of storage. It might confuse someone just briefly glancing at the thread so I wanted to make a mention.

    Yes, iCloud is free with 5GB of storage; extra storage can be purchased.
