I have several calendar lists on a team SharePoint site and wanted to display them using the Event Web Part on the Homepage. I created one Event Web and it worked fine with one of the calendars. I created a second one (I wanted the events to be viewed separately) and it fails to recognize events in three of the Calendars. The other two work fine, but not the one I need. All of the settings for the calendars are identical and I have repeated the error using other browsers on other networks and other computers.
What am I doing wrong?

There are items in the range and I currently do not have content approval turned on, but was going to apply it later to one of the working calendars (for time off requests).
I wouldn't be surprised if the event viewer only displays approved items.
I'm close to deleting the calendars and recreating them with the same name. Luckily I use a flow to populate them, so I can rerun the flow after recreating and it should have minimal impact.
I'll post the result of recreating later today.

I deleted the Calendar and recreated it, but the events are still not appearing in the Event Web Part. I also removed and re-added the Web Part with the same results. At this point I am going to simply remove the Web Part and try to find another solution.

And if I edit an event it appears on the Event.
It seems like the Event Web Part ignores events that are created by Flow. I do not know what the difference is, but that seems to have made an impact.
I'm testing another theory and will post shortly.

I tried changing the times of the automated events from midnight to 1 am to see if that helped, but with no change.
Once I manually change the event in any way it appears on the Event part.

I added an Update Item to the end of my flow to see if simply editing it made the fix, but with no luck. It seems I have to manually update/create an entry for it to appear on the Event Web Part.

What I find very strange is that I have another calendar using a similar flow to create events. They have the same calendar settings and the events are create in the same method, but those events appear on the Event Web Part.
Some of them are single day and others are multi-day (no repetitions) and they function without issues and without manually editing.

From what I have seen the created by/ modified by fields are connected to the account used to create the flow.
They always show my name.

I am experiencing the same issue with Flow. I have to edit the event from the UI before it shows up in the Events web part.
