WebCalendar (php/mysql) is a really nice solution.  
I have it running on several sites.  The code is straight-forward enough 
that if you have average development skills you can create custom 
queries to display text only view of events in list format, such as in a 
column on a page.

It is easy enough to write queries to add events (without using the GUI)
