Change a Calendar event’s time zone

You can change any event’s time zone. For example, if you’re traveling to another time zone for an event, you could change its time zone in Calendar.

  1. In Calendar, choose Calendar > Preferences, click Advanced, and then select the “Turn on time zone support” checkbox.
  2. Double-click the event and click Edit.
  3. Choose a time zone from the Time Zone pop-up menu.

    To pick a location that isn’t listed, choose Other. Click the time zone’s approximate location on the map, and then choose a city from the pop-up menu.

The time zone you set for an event affects where it appears on the calendar. For example, if you create an event at noon and set its time zone to France Time, but you have the Calendar time zone (in the top-right corner of the Calendar window) set to Pacific Time, the event appears 9 hours before noon. When you change the Calendar time zone to France Time, the event then appears at noon.
