After you have created an event on Google Calendar—and this can be any kind of event, really—you can begin adding people to it. Think of adding people to your event like adding additional details to your event description. When you add guests, they will not be notified right away; you must send them the invitation by editing and saving your event details.

Locate the event on your calendar that you want to start inviting people to. Click on it.
