Cabudare (Spanish pronunciation: [kaβuˈðaɾe], original indigenous name Kabudari), is a city in Lara State, in Venezuela, and capital of the Palavecino Municipality. Located at an elevation of 400 m. on the Turbio River, it is on the major west-central freeway, the Autopista Centro Occidental. Due to the growth of the economy in Barquisimeto, Cabudare has become a bedroom community, with new housing construction replacing the sugar cane fields. A minority of the population are still engaged in agriculture within the municipality.

The city had 59,671 inhabitants (c. 2001), which represented 44.4% of the total population of the Palavecino municipality.
