Karagounides (Greek: Καραγκούνηδες; Singular: Karagounis Greek: Καραγκούνης) is the name of the native people of the western plains of Thessaly, Greece. More specifically, the term is used to refer to the inhabitants of the lowland farming communities of the Karditsa and Trikala regions, and the area around the city of Farsala.

The older Karagounides still speak the Aeolic dialect of the Greek language.
