There is not a property parameter to declare the charset used in a property value. The default charset for an iCalendar stream is UTF-8 as defined in [RFC3629].

The "charset" Content-Type parameter MUST be used in MIME transports to specify the charset being used.

Need to test your iCalendar feeds? The iCalendar Validator provides developers and testers a method to validate their iCalendar feeds, which can take data from either a URL, file or text snippet and compare it against the RFC 5545 specification.  We believe we have one of the best iCalendar validation tools available on the internet. More information about the validator can be found here.
