Libertarian Party may refer to any one of several libertarian parties which follows a form of libertarianism, the oldest and largest of which is the Libertarian Party founded in the United States in 1971.

Since then, many countries and subnational political entities have had libertarian parties. Although these parties may describe themselves as libertarian, their ideologies differ considerably and not all of them support all elements of libertarianism. For instance, most of these political parties are right-libertarians as left-libertarianism takes a different approach, generally opposing electoral politics and political parties themselves.
