If you have imported it the right way (RightClick => NewCalender => Type Google), you can remove it with a right click on the Calender name and then delete.

If you have imported a CVS/ICS Calender file (google calender => export ) then this approach does not work.

Some calendars can't be just be removed using the UI (as added by online accounts), the only way I've found is to manually remove the matching sources from ~/.config/evolution/sources/. You can easily grep the ones you want remove by checking the DisplayName on them (they're in plain text). – Treviño Jun 9 '15 at 20:22

I was having a similar issue, and found that I could delete calendars if I shut down the clock applet first:

1) Go to System>Administration>System Monitor

2) Click on "clock-applet" then "End Process"

Don't restart when prompted to do so. You should now be able to delete your calendars.

To get the clock applet back, you may have to add it back to your panel by right-clicking on it, selecting"Add to panel", then "Clock", and placing it where you want.
