The Municipality of Sveti Jurij v Slovenskih Goricah (Slovene: Občina Sveti Jurij v Slovenskih goricah) is a municipality in northeastern Slovenia. It was created in 2006 when it separated from the Municipality of Lenart. It lies at the western end of the Slovene Hills (Slovene: Slovenske gorice). Its administrative centre is in Jurovski Dol. The area was part of the traditional region of Lower Styria. It is now included in the Drava statistical region.[1]

The municipality gets its name from the local parish church in Jurovski Dol, dedicated to Saint George (Slovene: sveti Jurij).[2]
