Try removing the com.apple.iCal.plist file from your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences Folder. To find that Library folder, use Finder>Go Menu>Depress the "Option" key>Library. Drag the .plist file to your desktop, and log out/in or restart.
Next, make sure that you are not connected to the internet. Then go to your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Calendars Folder and remove any files with "Cache" as a part of the file name. Use the same method as listed above to get to the correct Library Folder. Log out/in, or restart and check Calendar for functionality.OS X Mountain Lion, iPad 3G, iPhone 4, 20GB iPod Color, iPod shuffle

Thanks for the quick reply, Ferd!
In the Library/Preferences folder you ref above there are a lot of ".plist" files in alphabetical order, but there is not a "com.apple.iCal.plist" file.
Oops! Thank you Ferd and Eric.I was using just the Finder to try to navigate to the folder. I mistakenly took myself to the HD's library. I see now that the "GO Menu/Options key" takes me to the User's Library. Oops! Did not know the User's Library was not visible in the Finder without the Options key. Cheeky Devil.
I see the proper Preferences folder now....I learned something! Thanks!
Though, before I knew all the above, I went by the Apple Store. The Genuis there did the exact thing recommended, except he deleated all the .iCal.plist files.
Restart, iCloud reloaded all my Calendar events, and everything's back on track.
Thank you for your patients....

To q-bit, FERDII and Eric
I had the same problem happen to me today after setting up my icalendar to sync on icloud. Then the Loop problem started - first issue I have with my MacBook.The ipad, iphone and ipod worked fine - no issues there so I was confident the issue with with the laptop. I figured the root cause was an issue with i-cloud syncing to my google calendar - seems there is a lot of discussion/chatter out there on that issue. Anyways I removed the google calendar - and set all calendars to sync across devices via i-cloud using iCAL.
I was a bit nervous going into my libraries and deleting files - but I followed the instructions exactly and WORKED LIKE A CHARM!! - everything syncing now and working as it should!!
Thank you FerdII and Eric and thanx to q-bit for posting this, else I would be sitting here in frustration wondering why I made the switch

Yes. My trouble started the day after I sync'ed a google calendar account to the Mac's Calendar. (I had never had a gmail account before.)
Both are still sync'ed and running fine now. I guess that "initial sync-up" is a problem........

If you prefer to make your user library permanently visible, use the Terminal command found below.
