Warwick is a small town north east of Montreal, located in Arthabaska county, Quebec, Canada. The town was incorporated in 1861 and named after a city of the same name in England.

The town is known for its annual summer cheese festival, which showcases many of the locally produced artisanal cheeses. Warwick is also claimed to be one possible birthplace of the poutine (fries with gravy and cheese curds).[citation needed]

Warwick is located on Route 116.
