The 1976 Monaco Grand Prix (formally the XXXIV Grand Prix de Monaco) was a Formula One motor race held at the Monaco street circuit in Monaco on May 30, 1976. It was the fifth round of the 1976 Formula One season and the 34th Monaco Grand Prix. The race was contested over 78 laps of the 3.3 km circuit for a race distance of 257 kilometres.
The race was won by Ferrari driver Niki Lauda, who had also taken pole position in his Ferrari 312T2. Lauda won by 11 second over Jody Scheckter driving a six-wheeled Tyrrell P34, whilst Scheckter's teammate, Patrick Depailler, completed the podium in third position. As a consequence of the race, Lauda extended his lead in the World Drivers' Championship to 36 points over his team mate Clay Regazzoni who had retired after starting second, going off track on oil laid down when James Hunt retired, climbing back to third before crashing.
- The 1976 Indianapolis 500 is the same day as the Monaco Grand Prix so Mario Andretti raced at Indianapolis instead
