I have been using Calendar for a while and everything was working normally. However, suddenly it stopped showing some events in two of my calendars, and I dont understand why.

I can see all those events on calendar.google.com, but not on Mac calendar.

I've tried:

  1. Refreshing calendars
  2. Ticking on and off the calendars on the left-hand side of the Calendar app
  3. Removing/re-adding the calendar permissions under Accounts.

I dont know how else to fix this. All help is appreciated!


Indeed, it was a more wide-spread and general issue with Google.

However, I had opened a formal trouble ticket with them, which eventually got recognized, acknowledged, escalated, worked upon and resolved, by about 10:30 am PST 8/23/19.

However, you may need to still purge your calendar cache files:

  • go to calendar.app, go to settings, go to accounts, uncheck the calendar to disable, then quit the calendar application.
  • then, go to your User Library folder ( ~/library/calendars/ folder), (you can easily lookup how to do this if you don't know how to find it)

  • then, delete all items with the name "Cache" in it such as: Calendar Cache-shm Calendar Cache Calendar Cache-wal

  • go back to calendar.app, launch/run it, then, go to settings, go to accounts, check the calendar to re-enable your Google calendar account

  • Then finally, you may wish to also click CMD-R to refresh calendar data and wait for enough time for all data to re-sync

    This worked for me... but.... If you delete all the Caches, it will also delete subscription calendars (like one-off ICS links), which I struggled to remember how to get back. So just a forewarning, everyone! – Rob Latham Aug 24 '19 at 4:44

It is a general issue, not clear if it is on Mac or Google side: https://support.google.com/calendar/thread/12612472?hl=en
