The Ningbo people (; Ningbo dialect: ) or alternatively Mingzhou people () is the general name for two groups of Chinese people: those who live(d) in Ningbo, and those whose ancestors were from Ningbo. Many famous Chinese come from Ningbo, and many more have Ningbo as their ancestral home. Ningbo people are a subgroup of Wuyue Han Chinese. People from Zhoushan or with ancestry from there are also considered themselves to be Ningbo people. (Since Zhoushan in earlier times was part of Mingzhou or Ming Prefecture, an old name for Ningbo.)



Ningbo cuisine focuses on seafood, with emphasis on freshness and salty dishes. Ningbo is also known for its Tangyuan, which are small balls of glutinous rice flour and water filled with ground sesame paste with sugar.


Ningbo people speak a Taihu Wu Chinese dialect, called Ningbo dialect. It is barely mutually intelligible with Shanghai dialect, as Shanghai dialect speakers find Ningbo speech to be slightly unintelligible, but Ningbo dialect speakers have little difficulty understanding Shanghainese. Shanghainese people of Ningbonese descent speak primarily Shanghai dialect and Mandarin Chinese.
