Marshall, I think you might be using em_get_event() or em_get_events() functions somewhere in your theme, even if other events plugins are deactivated.
It is possible that some other events plugins use identical naming for their functions, but that functions require different parameters. If that kind of situation occur it could couse an error you described.
