Hi Faizan,
This is more of an administrator question, not developer question, and probably should be asked in the Trailblazer community:

Regardless, here's your answer:

You will want to create a Process in Process Builder that will run when an Event is created. Then fire the email alert from the Process.

This tutorial should help:

Yes I understand this but what will the Rule Criteria be? I am stuck on that. How will I check to see if an event is created so it can fire an email?

Yes, you want to create the Email Alert record. However, the ability to trigger the email alert when an Event is created must be accomplished using more than just an Email Alert. You need something like a Workflow Rule or Process created in Process Builder. Here is how you can use Process Builder to trigger the email on creation of an Event:

1. Create a Process in Process Builder for when a record changes
2. Choose Event object

3. Choose the Email Alert action
