We have recently taken over a festival website and noticed that Google appears to be picking up dates and start times for the event and displaying at the top of search results - this is great for promo but the time is incorrect and we arent sure how to change it - can anyone advise where it is getting this data from and how we might go about changing it change?
Does your website use schema? That is more often than not where Google would be getting the information to include in the snippet. In some cases, Google gets the info from another website (for instance, if you use a third party to list the event or get registrations). Assuming it is your website, here is Google's help article about event markup with how you can include event dates and times. I'd check your code to see if you have anything like this and then you could fix from there. https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/events
