The Ningbonese or Ningbo people are the people of Ningbo, China, whether resident or abroad. The Ningbonese are a subgroup of the Wu Han ethnicity. Many famous Chinese people have come from Ningbo and many more have Ningbo as their ancestral home.

Because Ningbo was formerly the capital of Ming Prefecture, its people are sometimes also known in Chinese as the Mingzhou. People from Zhoushan are also considered to be Ningbonese, since Zhoushan was formerly part of Mingzhou as well.
