Ty Pennington first garnered national attention as the quirky and creative carpenter on the groundbreaking home improvement series Trading Spaces. Later, as the host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, he helped transform the lives of hundreds while inspiring millions more around the world to volunteer their time to help others. The show was consistently rated among television’s top 20 programs and won two Emmys for Outstanding Reality Program. Ty has been recognized as a leader in the field of volunteerism for his work on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and his role with Adobe Shelters, an international charity that provides sustainable, humane housing for homeless and impoverished city dwellers. The groundbreaking home improvement series Trading Spaces returned in 2018 after a 10-year hiatus, so viewers have had the chance to get reacquainted with Ty as a carpenter and designer. Ty will be appearing on the Main Stage on Saturday, March 21 at 1 p.m. Learn more about Ty at typennington.com.
