Wufeng District (Chinese: 霧峰區; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Bū-hong-khu) is a suburban district in southern Taichung, Taiwan. It was the location of Taiwan Provincial Council before 1999.

Wufeng is a mainly agricultural town. It was heavily damaged by the Jiji earthquake on September 21, 1999, which caused around 100 deaths in the town[citation needed]. The 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan, which commemorates the giant quake, is built at what was formerly Guangfu Junior High School, which was destroyed when part of the school was uplifted by the Chelungpu Fault during the quake.

The two major geographical features of this town are the Wu Xi (Wu Stream), which forms the town's southern border, and Xiangbi Shan (Elephant Trunk Mountain), which lies in the eastern part of the township.
