Coincidentally, I just went through this exercise myself.

I fixed a couple of issues in icalevents[1] and then worked out how to
get the calendar details from database that the Mac actually uses to
track the calendars. I wrote icaldiary[2] to extract events from my
calendar(s) and create an emacs “diary” file which Org reads quite

Yeah, I found the same problem. I think that Apple stopped storing the
active calendar data in the plist files that org-mac-iCal checks. They
moved it into the cache which they store with sqlite3.

Hoping this is helpful…
