Congjiang County (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Cóngjiāng) is a county in Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture, Guizhou, China. It is divided by a river on the southeastern border of Guizhou, near Guangxi province.

It is an important transit point as the first major city inside Guizhou on the Sanjiang to Kaili road. A large bridge spans the river and connects the city's two halves.
