Meknassy (Arabic: المكناسي Al Miknāsī), sometimes spelt Maknassy, is a town and commune in the Sidi Bou Zid Governorate, Tunisia. In 2004 it had a population of 13,742. It is in the governorate of Sidi Bouzid, 120 kilometers west of Sfax, and is a small administrative center (capital of delegation) and a marketing center for agricultural produce from the surrounding area, including fruit.
Its population is explained by the settling of Berber tribes (Confederation of Hammama) that nomadic steppe in the region.[clarification needed]
