I'm developing a website for an organisation who, up until now, have only used Facebook as their only online presence. The organisation want all information that is currently avaiable on their Facebook page (Please note it is a Facebook 'page' for an organisation and not a Facebook account that an individual uses) to be available on the site.

The problem I'm having is that I am unable to find a Calendar plugin that stays in sync with the organisations Facebook page events.

I've looked at Google Calendar and I've discovered that it only supports synching with Facebook 'account' events and not Facebook 'page' events (it does support single events but does not check for new events). Does anyone know how to get Google Calendar to sync with a Facebook 'page' events or failing that, a good 'month-view' webpage calendar plugin that obtains its events from a Facebook page?

Any help is much appreciated.

You can also make and publish one yourself. The Google Calendar API is quite easy to use and I guess the Facebook Events API can't be that hard either.

Consider using Google AppEngine with a CRON job to do this, it's quite straightforward and the Google API's work out of the box.

Facebook aren't too friendly about getting data out of their systems, but you can use something like iCalendar to Event to go the other way - create Facebook events from a Google calendar. It's quite happy to put things on a page rather than personal account.
