Jelgava District (Latvian: Jelgavas rajons) was an administrative division of Latvia, located in Semigallia region, in the country's centre. It was organized into a city, two municipalities and twelve parishes, each with a local government authority.[1] The administrative centre of the district was Jelgava.

Districts were eliminated during the administrative-territorial reform in 2009.[citation needed]
