    I have a facebook event in my device's calendar that is displaying the correct time on the main calendar, but showing the incorrect event time in two different calendar widgets I've tried, as well as the event list in the Facebook app.

    To make matters more complicated, the facebook app is displaying a different incorrect time than the widgets.

    I've removed the facebook event from my calendar, reinstalled the widgets, done a battery pull, resynced, and the problem persists.

    I think the host changed the time of the event after I first synced it to my phone, but I'm not sure.

    Any suggestions? Anyone else had this happen to them?

    Posting the solution as this is a problem that affects more than just me.

    Long stoory short is that Facebook is screwing up the time zone of the events for a lot of people. To work around it you have to use the fbcal app on facebook to generate a URL to ypur facebook calendar which you then add to your google calendars.

    It looks like there isn't any fix, unless you count crossing fingers and waiting for an update.
