Let’s dive in.

How to Cancel an Event on Facebook on Desktop

Facebook users can easily cancel an event by logging into Facebook, heading over to the Events section from the left-hand navigation bar, and canceling the event they’re looking forward to canceling from there itself. 

Follow these exact steps to learn how to cancel an event on Facebook:

Find the Event You’re Looking Forward to Canceling

Facebook Events

For the purpose of showing you how to cancel an event on Facebook, I created a dummy event that goes by the name “Test Event.” And now, I’ll show you how to cancel it.

So, the first step is to log in to Facebook after heading over to www.facebook.com.

If or once logged in, find “Events” in the left-hand navigation bar. You’ll probably find it after clicking on the “See more” section. As you click on events, Facebook will redirect you to the Events page. 

From here, you can either type in your event name in the “Search Events” search box or you can find it under “Your Events.” Click on “Going” and locate your event. 

Cancel the Event

As you find your event, click on the three-dotted-horizontal-line next to it. As you click on it, you’ll see the following options:

  • {Link of the event}
  • Notification Settings
  • Duplicate Event
  • Add to Calendar
  • Export Guest List
  • Cancel Event

Click on “Cancel Event” to cancel the event. 

Now, you’ll see two options:

  • Cancel Event – Upon clicking on this option, your guests will be notified and while there still will be an event page, you won’t be able to edit it. 
  • Delete Event – Upon selecting this option, you will never be able to access this event’s page as you will be deleting it permanently. 

Click on “Cancel Event” to cancel the event. Also, you can add a post related to why you canceled the event. Once you’re done, click on “Confirm” to cancel the event.

That being said, let’s learn how to cancel an event on Facebook on mobile devices.

How to Cancel an Event on Facebook on Mobile Devices

To cancel an event on Facebook on your mobile device, head over to the Facebook menu by clicking on the three-vertical-line in the top-right corner just below the messenger icon, select “Events,” find your event and cancel it.

Head Over to Facebook Events

First, launch your Facebook mobile application and log in to your account, if you haven’t already. As you do, click on the three-vertical-line which you can see just below the messenger icon (as you can see in the screenshots).

As you do, find the “Events” option. Click on “Events” and Facebook will redirect you to the Events page. Here, we need to find your event – which is why we’ll click on the “Calendar” icon at the top. Or you can directly look up the event by using the search feature.

Cancel the Event

Once you find the event, click on it to head over to the event’s page. From here, if you want to cancel the event, select “Manage” – which is located on the right of “Start Room.”

As you click on “Manage,” you will see the following options:

  • Edit
  • Duplicate
  • Invite
  • Add to Calendar
  • Copy Link
  • Save
  • Notification Settings

To cancel the event on Facebook, we’ll select the “Edit” option. From here, you can edit your event’s settings like Description, Location, and more. But if you look at the bottom, you’ll also see a “Cancel Event” option. 

Now, you’ll see two options:

  • Cancel Event – If you select this option, your guests will be notified. While there still will be an event page, you will not be able to edit it. 
  • Delete Event – If you choose this option, you’ll never be able to access this event’s page as you will be deleting it permanently. 

Select “Cancel Event” and hit “Confirm.”

As you do, Facebook will cancel your event.

Congratulations – achievement unlocked!
