Maaskantje (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈmaːskɑntʃə]) is a village in the Dutch province North Brabant. The village is part of the municipality Sint-Michielsgestel, south east of 's-Hertogenbosch.

The village has about 1,600 inhabitants. Maaskantje is linked together with the village Den Dungen. Before 1996, Maaskantje was part of the municipality of Sint-Michielsgestel instead of the municipality of Den Dungen. In 1996, Den Dungen became part of Sint-Michielsgestel.

The Dutch Comedy Central sketch show New Kids that takes place in the village has generated tourism to the village.[1] The village's signs were stolen by New Kids fans and the municipality decided not to replace them.[2]
