This article covers how to sync Facebook events that you’re going to with Google Calendar. Facebook already provides a native feature using which you can download all the upcoming events including Going to, Maybe and Interested, and Not Responded to events as an iCalendar file (*.ics). Later, you can sync those events with Google or Outlook Calendar by adding that file. However, it is not helpful when you want to add only those Facebook events that you’re going to attend. Still, it is possible with a free service called “Facebook Event Calendar“.
This service lets you filter only Going to events from your Facebook upcoming events. After that, you can directly connect your Google account using the service interface to sync that file or manually use output URL of events with your Google Calendar. As a result, you are able to sync only Going to events from Facebook to Google Calendar.
In the screenshot above, you can see that I added Facebook events URL with only Going to events.
