      Hi Alyson,

      do you want to remove a holiday subscription? If it is the iOS built-in holiday, you can’t remove it (the the ‘Note’ section in this post). Hence, you cannot see any subscribed calendar option.

      If it is another one, give me more information, please.

    These instructions are not valid for IOS 8.1.4. I cannot see an option called Subscribed Calendars, nor an option to delete.

    If you go to your calendar app, click on the word calendar at the bottom and select hide all for all the calendars, you can then check which calendars you want to show up on your actual calendar. Hit done and it should clear all preloaded useless holiday calendars. Hope it helps!
