Map of the municipality

Middelfart Municipality is a municipality (Danish, kommune) in Region of Southern Denmark on the west coast of the island of Funen in southern Denmark. The municipality covers an area of 297 km². It has a total population of 37,274 (2008). Its mayor is Steen Dahlstrøm, a member of the Social Democrats (Socialdemokraterne) political party. The main town and the site of its municipal council is the town of Middelfart.

The Snævringen ("The Narrowing"), is the strait that separates the island of Funen from the Jutland mainland in this area, where the two lie very close to each other, often less than 1.5 km apart. Snævringen is an extension of the Kattegat, and begins near the cities of Fredericia and Middelfart. To the south of the municipality is Fænø Strait (Fænø Sund), which separates Funen from the municipality's island of Fænø.

On January 1, 2007 Middelfart municipality was, as the result of Kommunalreformen ("The Municipal Reform" of 2007), merged with Ejby and Nørre Aaby municipalities to form an enlarged Middelfart municipality.
