How to Import Facebook Events into the macOS Calendar

This brief tutorial will guide you through the steps required to export Facebook Events and import them to Calendar.app on your Mac.

  1. Start by finding the Facebook Event you want to import into your Calendar. Locate the “3 dots” button (see screenshot below) click it and then select Export event. If you don’t see Export event as an option, this event can’t be saved as an .ics file and imported into your Calendar app. Editors note: we’ve searched far and wide in the Facebook documentation and cannot determine why some Events have the Export event feature and others don’t.

  1. Thanks for the tip! Did not notice the Export link, and had no idea it worked with iCal until now.
