Google Calendar: Repeating Events on Every 5th Sunday

The Trick

Click on the first day of the series in Google Calendar and type 'My Event, fifth Sunday of every month, 12:30-3:00' in the "What:" field:

Modify details as necessary.

The Story

I use Google Calendar as my primary calendar. Having an Android phone, this is quite convenient, as I can not only pull up my calendar at any time, but am also able to set reminders which deliver notifications to my phone.

Just today, I ran into a problem: how do I get an event to repeat on every 5th Sunday of the month? Through the Google Calendar interface, the only options for repeating seemed to be on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and last Sunday of the month.
At this point, I decided it was time to consult Google... Looking through different forum posts, I found this solution and posted it here.


  1. Thank you so much it worked perfectly :)

  2. Brilliant! Why this isn't an option in the Edit dialog is baffling....

    Handily solves not adding the event to the fourth week when it is the last week!

  3. This doesn't seem to work anymore in 2017, can anyone confirm update?

  4. Confirmed Birdman, I can't get it to work in the new calendar.

  5. Some apps like aCalendar on Android seem to allow repeating events on every fifth of a day of the week!
