The Dzikowska Confederation (Polish: konfederacja dzikowska) was a military organisation formed in 1734 in Dzików (today suburb of Tarnobrzeg) by supporters of Stanisław I Leszczyński during the War of Polish Succession, under the leadership of Adam Tarło.

The watchword of the confederation was: "Fight with Saxony and Russia for political independence of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and carry out political reforms."

The confederation was defeated.
