Running from Monday September 14 to Sunday October 4, one of the main attractions will be a map of the world made from dahlias.
The display will commemorate the 16th International Conference of National Trusts, which is being held in Cambridge from Monday 7 to Friday 11 September.
The festival will also feature the work of Cambridge-born, contemporary artist Rebecca Louise Law, who returns to revisit the interactive installation of over 1000 dahlia heads.
Visitors will be asked to choose a dahlia of their choice and encouraged to take part in the creation of the artwork, which will meander throughout the gardens.
Creation of the Dahlia Line is set to start on WednesdaySeptember 23.
