I want to import a recurring date in Google calendar.

FREQ=YEARLY;BYDAY=3SU;BYMONTH=7 is the third Sunday in July

But I want Saturday before the third Sunday of July. And also the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday after the found Saturday.

Is there a solution?

I'm afraid Google Calendar isn't that sophisticated. – Al E. May 8 '13 at 23:47
That said, this answer shows how you might use the iCalendar spec to put in some rather exotic repeating patterns. – Al E. May 9 '13 at 12:28

Thank you for your answer. After a lot of searching and trying I found a solution:






SUMMARY:My event



Now I want to know: The Saturday before the last Sunday of July.

If you'd made your new variant a question, I'd have added an answer, albeit very late. In short though, you can use negative values in BYMONTHDAY to count back from the end of the month. – mc0e Feb 3 at 12:13
