In MySQL 5.6 is there a way to drop all scheduler events with an administrative command or do I have to go through them one by one with DROP EVENT [IF EXISTS] event_name?

I think you have to use the INFORMATION_SCHEMA.EVENTS table to gather all the active events and then construct and run the DROP EVENT statements. –  ypercube Jul 3 '13 at 8:28
It looks like this is the only way, so it's scripting time. Thanks –  Lefteris Koutsoloukas Jul 3 '13 at 8:48
