The 2011 Four Continents Figure Skating Championships was an international figure skating competition in the 2010–11 season. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. The four continents of the event's name refer to the Americas, Asia, Africa, and Oceania, which are four of the continents represented in the Olympic rings, omitting Europe.

The 2011 competition was held at the Taipei Arena in Taipei, Taiwan from February 15 through 20, 2011.

The competition was open to skaters from a non-European member nation of the International Skating Union who reached the age of 15 by July 1, 2010. Each country may send up to three entries per discipline.
