Do you mean you want to display the Google Calendar events on your website in the agenda form? Yes, it is possible.
On the calendar page on the left, when you mouse over the name of the calendar, a dropdown arrow shows, click on that and choose Calendar settings. On this page is code to embed the calendar on a page of your website. Under the words: "Paste this code into your website" is a link to customize the color, size and other options. Click on that. On the left side of the page, you can choose which parts of the event you want to show and under that, you choose the default view, and agenda is one of the choices.

Also, if you don't choose to show the tabs, it will remove the ability to change the agenda view to Week or Month.

I have spent the last few months trying to do that, and I haven't succeeded. I specifically wanted to have the page on my website display the location without having to click on the event and see the location. I haven't tried using cURL to grab the data, don't know if that is possible - to grab the whole page and get the data out of it. Google might not allow it.

Certainly you could use CSS to style the data as you wish, and the calendar settings gives you some limited styling choices, like color, size and background color.
