outlook 2010 shared calendars

where I work, we have outlook 2010 with some shared calendars.
Is there a way to see who can access the shared calendar if you are not the person sharing out the calendar?
For example, when I open the shared calendar I right click on the calendar it has an error about not being able to display the folder properties
so I assume that this calendar was shared to only allow viewing appointments or something like that.
So since I don't have access, is there some other way to see who can access the calendar, or would I pretty much have to contact the owner of the calendar?
Also, I don't have access to the exchange server - so if the "other way" is something on the exchange server, then, for my purposes, that wouldn't be an option.

In Exchange 2010/Outlook 2010, if a user shares out a folder to other Outlook users, that person is then the owner of the folder and can see who he/she has granted rights to(right-click the folder, Properties, Permissions tab).  Unless the owner of the folder has granted you 'Owner' permissions to the folder, you cannot view/edit the permissions list to the folder... so you would have to contact the owner, and either ask them, or if they are so inclined, ask them to grant you owner rights on the folder.

There are some back-end methods to get this information, but they require you to have elevated permissions in Exchange/Active Directory... and from your post, it does not appear that you have these rights.

My apologies, your original request said shared calendars, not shared folders... but I do believe they act the same way.  Testing with Outlook 2013 right now, don't have a Outlook 2010 client handy... but they likely act the same

Yes, verified that only the calendar owner can see who has permissions to the shared calendar... or someone granted 'owner' rights to the calendar.  My above statement is accurate, you'll either have to ask the owner, or have the owner grant you 'owner' permissions.

Here is a summary of what the different shared calendar permissions do in Exchange 2010(near the bottom):
