I want to convert my Outlook Calendar into the Google Calendar and then only use the Google Calendar.

What is the best way to do this?

@Krampus: I don't believe a 3rd party tool is required here so I edited the question to make it sound less like it was asking for a recommendation. – w3dk Dec 4 '13 at 16:02

You can simply export/Save-as the calendar from MS Outlook and import it into Google calendar. Note, however, that there does appear to be a restriction with Outlook's repeating events.

From Google's import dialog: "Google Calendar can import event information in ical or CSV (MS Outlook)"

  1. Open Outlook
  2. Click Calendar
  3. Right click on the calendar you need to export and choose Save as
  4. Select type iCalendar format
  5. Click on More Options and select Date Range -> Whole calendar, Detail -> Full details
  6. Click OK and then Save
  7. In Google Calendar, click the down-arrow next to Other calendars
  8. Select Import calendar
  9. Click Choose file and find the file that contains your events, then click Open
  10. Select the Google Calendar where you'd like to import events, then click Import
