Kornstad is a village (and a former municipality) in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The village is located in the present-day Averøy Municipality, on the west side of the island of Averøya, along the Kornstadfjorden. Kornstad Church is located in this village. The village of Visnes (in Eide Municipality) lies directly across the fjord from Kornstad village.
Kornstad was also a municipality from 1897 until 1964. The former municipality covered the southwestern part of the island of Averøya and the small Vevang area on the Romsdal peninsula, across the fjord. The municipality was 66 square kilometres (25 sq mi) upon its dissolution.
The municipality of Kornstad was established on 1 January 1897 when the old Kvernes Municipality was divided. Initially, Kornstad had a population of 1,599. On 1 January 1964, the district of Vevang (population: 562) was transferred into the neighboring Eide Municipality. Also on that date, the rest of Kornstad (population: 1,356) was merged into the newly created Averøy Municipality.
