    You either have to drop them singularly i.e. DROP EVENT xxx as per this manual page

    OR you can generate the drop script by using something like this (add a filter to the select if you need to be more specific) :
    mysql -Dinformation_schema -BNse "select event_schema, event_name from events" | while read db evnt; do mysql -D $db -Bse "drop event if exists $evnt"; done

    Please note that according to this page, you can delete multiple events with a single query, however we believe this to be a documentation error and do not recommend you do it this way. Firstly, it requires high level privileges, which may not be appropriate, and it also looks like you need to be running in debug mode which is not a great idea for production. We don't recommend you follow that approach.

    Hope this helps?
