With Google Calendar, you can export content from a specific calendar or from all your calendars at once.

Part I:  Exporting content from a specific calendar

Follow these steps to export one of your calendars:

  1. In the calendar list on the left side of the page, move your mouse over the calendar you'd like to export from.

  2. You'll see a drop-down arrow appear next to the calendar name. Click the drop-down arrow and select Calendar settings. (Alternatively, click the drop-down arrow next to My calendars and select Settings, then click the appropriate calendar from the list.)
  3. Click the ICAL button in the 'Private Address' section at the bottom of the page, and click the displayed URL.
  4. Save the exported file to the desired folder on your computer.

If you receive a 'Feed Processing Error' message when exporting events, please make sure you're using your calendar's private iCalendar address ('Private Address'). You can only use your calendar's public iCalendar address ('Calendar Address') to export events when your calendar is publicly shared. Learn how to share your calendar with others.
