Hi there,

From what I remember, that’s a known issue. If you’ll notice in Event Espresso>General settings it instructs to use a city for the time zone. You’ll need to use a city instead of UTC in the WordPress >Settings>General under the Timezone setting. The same applies if you’re using the Event Timezone feature.
