The 2011 elections to the Corts Valencianes were the eighth elections to the Corts Valencianes, the regional parliament for the Spanish autonomous community of the Valencian Community. The elections were held on 22 May 2011 to elect the 99 members of the Corts in three electoral districts corresponding to the provinces of Alicante, Castellón and Valencia. Only lists which polled 5% or more in the entire Valencian Community were eligible for seats which were then allocated on a provincial basis using the D'Hondt method of allocation. The elected members then selected the President of the Generalitat Valenciana from among their number.

The elections were won by the People's Party (PP), which gained a seat, despite a drop in its vote share. Since the previous election, the electoral alliance between United Left of the Valencian Country (EUPV) and the Bloc Nacionalista Valencià (BNV) had ended and both groupings contested the elections in their own right, with both gaining seats in the legislature at the expense of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE), which continued its long term decline in the area.
