Repeater working on archive page but not on page template

  • As always, forgive my mess.

    I have a client who wants to list all upcoming events on one page and previous events on another page. I have created a custom post type (event) with a repeater field (date_time) that has an ‘event_date’ and ‘time’ sub_field. I’ve managed to get things to work on my archive-event.php page, but not on a custom template page that I’m using to display previous events.

    	$repeater = get_field('date_time');
    	$today = date('Ymd');
    	$args = array(
    		'post_type' => 'event',
    		'posts_per_page' => -1,
    		'meta_key' => $repeater['event_date'],
    		'orderby' => 'meta_value_num',
    		'order' => 'DESC',
    		'meta_query' => array(
    				'key'		=> $repeater['event_date'],
    				'compare'	=> '>=',
    				'value'		=> $today,
    				'type' => 'DATE'
    	global $post;
    	$posts = get_posts($args);
    	foreach( $posts as $post ) :
        setup_postdata($post); ?>
    <article <?php post_class('borderBottom clearfix') ?> id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    	<div class="col_3">
    	<?php if( have_rows('date_time') ): ?>
            <?php while( have_rows('date_time') ): the_row(); 
    		$date = get_sub_field('event_date');
    		$dateFormat = DateTime::createFromFormat('Ymd', $date);
    			echo '<h3>' . $dateFormat->format('m/d/y') . '</h2>'; ?>
    			<h2><?php the_sub_field('time'); ?></h2>
            <?php endwhile; ?>
        <?php endif; ?>
    <!--additional information that isn't affected-->
    	<?php endforeach; ?>
        <?php wp_reset_postdata(); ?>

    I’ve isolated the problem to the .col_3 div, so I’ve removed the extraneous code. I suspect it has something to do with the global $post call, but I’m not sure.
