Jiaojiang District (Tai-chow dialect: Tsiao-kông K'ü; simplified Chinese: 椒江区; traditional Chinese: 椒江區; pinyin: Jiāojiāng Qū) is a district and the seat of the prefecture-level city of Taizhou in Zhejiang Province, China. It is named after the Jiao River (Jiaojiang in Chinese).

The district has its mainland area of 266.5 km2 (102.9 sq mi), and its islands area is 13.6 km2 (5.3 sq mi). The total area is 280.1 km2 (108.1 sq mi). As of 2003, the population was approximately 471,500.

It has an average annual precipitation of 1,500 mm (59 in). The average temperature in January is 6 °C, in July it is 28 °C, and average annual temperature is 17 °C.

Until 1980, the district was under the administration of Huangyan and was called Haimen District. When Haimen was upgraded to a county-level city in 1981, it was renamed as Jiaojiang City to avoid confusion with Haimen in Jiangsu province.

In 1994, the prefecture-level city of Taizhou was established, and Jiaojiang City became the main district of Taizhou.
