How to Delete all Events in Google Calendar

Google Calendar is a fantastic free tool for managing your schedule. I personally use it to keep track of, and remind myself of, my routine monthly events. While I’m more of a casual user, Calendar power users might occasionally run into problems where a complete reset is looking like the best solution. For example, an importing disaster that creates a ton a duplicates might call for a complete do-over. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to delete all events in Google Calendar so you can start anew with a clean slate.

How to Delete All Events & “Reset” Your Google Calendar

Unfortunately Google Calendar does not let you select multiple one-time events and delete them with a single action. You could delete individual events one by one, but the easiest way to delete all events from a calendar is to simply delete the calendar itself and recreate it.


Open Google Calendar and sign in to your Google Account.

Click the Cog icon at the upper right corner and select Settings.

Click the calendar you wish to delete all events from under Settings for my calendars at the lower left.

To recreate your calendar, exit settings (click the back arrow at the upper left), click the + symbol next to Other calendars at the lower left and select Create new calendar.

Name your calendar, optionally add a description, and click the Create calendar button.
