Pontfaverger-Moronvilliers is a commune in the Marne department in north-eastern France.

Although the town of Pontfraverger-Moronvilliers was originally two separate smaller towns, Pontfaverger and Moronvilliers, they were joined together as one in 1950 after Moronvilliers was destroyed during World War I and never rebuilt.
