On iCloud.com, you can make a public calendar and share the URL with your family as shown in this screenshot :
The problem is that it can't be subscribed to in Google Calendar. An error message pops up or no events are shown. I tried in Mozilla Sunbird (a free calendar app) and the events show perfectly.
Can your family sign up for a iCloud account even if they don't have any Apple products ? They would have to access the calendar via the web, though.
Thanks for your answer..
it dosn't really solve my problem, since I'm not interested in only sharing a calender on the web.
My wish is to sync my calendar with friends and family that are not using icloud, and not using apple product at all.
For example: My girlfriend, how finaly is getting a smartphone, needs some way to add and edit our shared calendar, so that we can both enter and edit appointments.
Same goes for my parrents, that whants to be able to set appointments of when they want to pick up our son at the daycare.
All this is possible, and has been possible for ages with other online calendar systems, so why does apple take a step down the evolutionstaires by disabling such a great feature?
Though MobileMe was not perfect, it did infact make this possible as I remember, so why can't this be done in iCloud?
You can subscribe to CalDav on your i-device, but you can't share one with friends, in what world is that logic?
