Go to ezEdit->Display tab->Display Fields and hit Edit on your date field. Scroll down all the way to the bottom where the field type is and choose Calculated Format. On the calculated format field add your date field in the following format <%YourFieldNameHere%>.
This would display the date as readonly field.

I am doing this already.
I am getting the following error when saving.
The following error occurred: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
I'm guessing this format converts the field to a string. Is there any way around this so I can display the value of this field as read only

The steps I provided above worked well for me and it should work for you too.
What's your Quests Web Parts and SharePoint version?

Hi – I have a date field that I’d like to display as read only on an Edit form so I changed the format from regular to calculated. I am getting the following error when saving.The following error occurred: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.I’m guessing this format converts the field to a string. Is there any way around this so I can display the value of this field as read only?Thanks.

I used the same version as you.
Please check the datetime format on your machine, it could be that the error happened because of a different date format.
