Ken,  I have not looked at VCalendar, so have no feedback.  Take a look 
at webcalendar, available off sourceforge.net. 


I have it running on one client's site, www.longmontsba.org and my site, 
www.dottedi.biz.  It has both public and private views, requires 
php/mysql.  I found that the code is easy enough to follow that it's not 
so difficult to do minor tweaking as needed.  Also it is easy enough to 
write queries to pull out events and add as list items on a page column.
