Event Date Times Showing Up Wrong On All Events

On every single event we have setup on our site, the event date times are incorrect. They are all setup correctly in the back end but are showing up much different as in instead of 8 am to 12 pm it is showing 3 am to 7 am. The Wordress Settings time zone is setup correctly as “Chicago” and I have checked the plugins for a conflict and can’t fine one. I have tried updating each location as well with the correct times and it still shows the discrepancy.

You mentioned you checked the plugins for a conflict, was that by temporarily deactivating all the plugins, then checking to see if the times were corrected? You might also check for a theme conflict. The function that usually causes this conflict is date_default_timezone_set() and here’s an article that explains why date_default_timezone_set() should not be used on a WordPress website:
