I had the same problem with my site and ended up using ${startDate} instead of ${eventDate} in the format string to "fix" the problem. Not a real fix since ${eventDate} should work, but seems like a bug to me - the event creation date is shown for ${eventDate} when you use option 5 - Most recently created events.

If there is a way to fix this so ${eventDate} works, I'm interested. This thread says "SOLVED" but the last post from gotton says s/he still has the problem.

${eventDate} is a confusing name.

Consider you have a multi-day event lasting a whole month and your latest events module lists the events for the next 5 days e.g. 30 Sept - 4 Oct. Then for each of these days the ${eventDate} will output the 'current' date as opposed to anything to do with the start date of the event i.e. it is the date on which the event is taking place as opposed to when it started.

The same is true for mode 5 - but in that scenario we are looking at the days where events were created.

Hope this makes a bit more sense now.
