I'd like to know how to add events to my Google Calendar via command line. What's the best way?

You might want to check out khal, which is a CalDAV command line calendar client – mcantsin Jan 21 '14 at 12:18

Yes you can do it. To do this we have tool named as gcalcli . by typing as gcalcli editor you can have a calender which is editable.

Look at its manpage for more information : gcalcli-manpage


There is a project in Google also with examples , goggle-calender

If its not installed , to install it type as sudo apt-get install gcalcli in your terminal and then you can install & use it.

to give more understanding on usage I have found one good link which can help you.

google-calender-howto and this link have everything for you.
