Google Calendar: Clear the Primary Calendar

It isn’t possible to delete your primary calendar. However, you can clear the calendar of all events if you would ever want to start from scratch. To do so, follow these steps to clear your primary calendar’s events:

  1. Navigate to
  2. Click the “Calendar” link and log in to your account.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow next to “My calendars.”
  4. Choose “Settings” from the resulting list.
  5. To the right of your primary calendar (the one with your name as the title), click the “Delete” link. You will be warned that you will permanently delete all the events from the calendar. Confirm this action by checking the box (“Yes, I definitely want to delete all of the events on my calendar”) and then click [Delete all events].

Depending on the number of events to delete, it may be a few moments before you can fully access the calendar features.
