As quick solution you can create helper in your module


namespace Acme\StackExchange\Helper;

use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper;
use Magento\Framework\App\Helper\Context;
use Magento\Framework\Locale\ResolverInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Stdlib\DateTime\TimezoneInterface;

class Date extends AbstractHelper
     * @var TimezoneInterface
    protected $timezone;

     * @var string
    protected $locale;

    public function __construct(Context $context, TimezoneInterface $timezone, ResolverInterface $localeResolver)
        $this->timezone = $timezone;
        $this->locale = $localeResolver->getLocale();

    public function formatDate(string $value, string $format): string
        $convertedDate = $this->timezone->date(
            new \DateTime($value, new \DateTimeZone('UTC')),

        return $convertedDate->format($format);

and use this helper in template

// define it in the top
$_dateHelper = $this->helper(\Acme\StackExchange\Helper\Date::class);

// use
echo $_dateHelper->formatDate($_order->getCreatedAt(), 'm/d/Y');
  • Thanks for your help! i have following error with your code: ParseError: syntax error, unexpected 'echo' (T_ECHO). Why? Thanks Jun 3 at 22:21
  • Inside HTML use <?= $_dateHelper->formatDate($_order->getCreatedAt(), 'm/d/Y'); ?>. <?= equal <?php echo Jun 4 at 11:27
  • Okay thanks now error is different.. Error: Class 'MakeDo\DateTime\Helper\Date' not found in /home/web/aarte.com.au/www/lib/internal/Magento/Framework/ObjectManager/Factory/AbstractFactory.php:121 Jun 4 at 14:59
  • Make sure you properly registered your module MakeDo\DateTime and make sure you've specified correct namespace and class name for helper Jun 4 at 19:01
  • I made a quick video if you have time for check it :) we.tl/t-0N0udUag2q Jun 4 at 22:17
