Since your event occurs on 2 different days/times and occurs at a
different location each day, I would suggest marking it up as two
separate events. You can wrap the vevent container around the content
block that contains the dates, mark up the datetimes, and then include
the event name and locations using the include pattern [1]. Sorry I
don't have time to go into more detail. I may be able to take a closer
look later -- it's certainly an interesting example.
