Add an event to your personal calendar

When you sign up for an event, you may want to know if any changes are made. You can do this by subscribing a live feed to your calendar.

You can also download a single event to your calendar via the Add to My Calendar link. However, this only gives you a snapshot of an event at the time you download it. You will not receive updates about any changes to the event.
