I tried to import a calendar file (.ics file) into Google Calendar, but it gave me an error message:
Processed 0 of 0 events
The file you tried to import is too large
How do I import it?

Apparently there is a file size limit, of about 1MB or 1.5MB on import files. The solution is to manually split up the .ics file into multiple parts.
Basically, the format of an .ics file is
BEGIN:VCALENDAR calendar settings BEGIN:VEVENT event stuff END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT event stuff END:VEVENT ... END:VCALENDAR
To split it up into multiple parts, you need to keep the
calendar settings and
END:VCALENDAR, and split up the VEVENTs into multiple files. So, you can create a file 1.ics that has
BEGIN:VCALENDAR calendar settings <first half of VEVENTs> END:VCALENDAR
and another file 2.ics that has
BEGIN:VCALENDAR calendar settings <second half of VEVENTs> END:VCALENDAR
Now import 1.ics, then import 2.ics, and you'll be good. You might need to split up into more than 2 files; split it up into files that are each smaller than 1MB.
