Import events from iCalendar or CSV files

To import events from iCalendar or CSV files, just follow these steps:

If you're re-importing events from the same Google Calendar, do not delete the events in your calendar first. Simply import the file, which will make the necessary updates. Deleting all the events will cause you to not be able to import your file.
