Tai'erzhuang District (Chinese: 台儿庄区; pinyin: Tái'érzhuāngQū) is one of five districts under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Zaozhuang. The district is located in the south of Shandong Province, in northeastern China. It covers an area of 538 km² and has a population of 290,000.

The district was the site of the Battle of Taierzhuang fought between the armies of the Chinese Kuomintang and Japan in 1938 during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The former site of the battle (Chinese: 台儿庄大战旧址; pinyin: Tái'érzhuāngdàzhànjiùzhǐ) has been listed as a national monument of the People's Republic of China since 2006 (resolution number 6-981).
