Use the File -> Export command.
If that doesn't help then you'll need to give a lot more information.
Remember: we cannot see your machine. There are 9 different versions of iPhoto and they run on 8 different versions of the Operating System. The tricks and tips for dealing with issues vary depending on the version of iPhoto and the version of the OS. So to get help you need to give as much information as you can. Basic things like :
- What version of iPhoto.
- What version of the Operating System.
- Details. As full a description of the problem as you can. For instance: 'iPhoto won't export' is best explained by describing how you are trying to export, and so on.
- History: Is this going on long? Has anything been installed or deleted?
- Are there error messages?
- What steps have you tried already to solve the issue.
- Anything unusual about your set up? Or how you use iPhoto?
Anything else you can think of that might help someone understand the problem you have.
Posts that consist of "iPhoto doesn't work. Help" or "iPhoto won't print" or "Suddenly I have no photos!!!!!!!!!!" mean that any helper is simply guessing. More information means you get better assistance.

Are you trying to drag the Event icon to the Desktop or the photos inside the event? The Event icon can't be dragged to the desktop and get the pictures. One must open the event, select the photos and drag them to the Desktop. But remember you'll be getting the edited version of those photos if they've been edited rather than the original.
Exporting as suggested above gives you more options on what you'll get on the Desktp, i.e. originals, edited, size, quality, etc.
