Hello yadnam,


Thank you for providing us additional information regarding your issue. As you noted earlier, since this behavior only seems to occur on your iPad but not on your iPhone or iMac, let's try to first to turn off the calendar settings for iCloud as the following article shows you :

Hello yadnam,

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!

I understand that you seem to be having a problem with duplicated anniversaries in your Calendar app. I would like to help you with some articles that might help you with this issue.
I want to offer you the following article with additional info:
Get help with duplicate iCloud calendars​
That article also offers you information to a related article that can help to determine which calendar might be repeated:
iCloud: Advanced Calendar and iCal troubleshooting
Pay attention to the following portion of that article:

Remove unusable and duplicate events

Duplicate events, especially those that occurred in the past, can slow down Calendar (or iCal) particularly when syncing with iCloud. You can use some simple tricks in iCal to find and remove duplicated data.

  1. Open Calendar (or iCal).
  2. Type a period in the Search field located in the top-right corner.
  3. All of your calendar events will appear in the search results, located in the side of the Calendar window (or bottom of the iCal window). Depending on how many events you have, it may take a few minutes for all of them to display.
  4. Scroll through the events. Remove any events that do not have titles by selecting them, and choosing Delete from the Edit menu.

    You can select consecutive items by holding down the Shift key while selecting them. You can select non-consecutive items by holding down the Command key while selecting them.

  5. Remove any obvious duplicate events. You may want to retain a single version of a duplicate event, but you should remove unwanted versions.
  6. Look for any events whose titles contain complicated characters or symbols. These include high ASCII or double-byte (Unicode) characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Emoji, or other extended ASCII characters). Try removing these characters or substituting them with simpler characters. For example, if you had an event titled " Store Appointment" rename it to "Apple Store Appointment".
  7. Click the Date field in the search results to sort by date.
  8. Scroll through the events and scan for duplicates again. In many cases, it will be easier to locate duplicate events that exist on the same day.
  9. Delete any duplicate events by selecting them and choosing Delete from the Edit menu. You may want to retain a single version of a duplicate event, but unwanted versions should be removed.

Note: If you have a large number of duplicates that would be overly time consuming to clean up by hand, you may want to use a third party utility such a Busycal, Calendar Cleaner, or iCal Dupe Deleter. For information about how to use these applications, refer to their built-in help or contact the vendor.

You can always try to update your device to the latest iOS version 11.1.1 by going to Settings > General > Software Update. If there's an update, tap Download and Install. If your iOS is already up to date, you see the latest version number and no option to install a new version.
Hope this information is helpful. Let me know if you need additional help.
Regards.

Thank yo Allen for reply.

Unfortunately yr reply did not refer to my problem. I did not address duplicate events. I know how to erase. I addressed duplicate anniversaries. You may know that you can only delete anniversaries if you untick anniversaries in yr calendar. In that case all anniversaries disappear. My problem is that I have around 50 anniversaries showing up in my agenda of which 7or 8 are duplicated. I just do not understand why. I wish I could simply delete one (of these two).

More amazing is that te problem only occurs on my iPad, not on my iPhone.

Thanks for reply.

Dirk
