The Libertarian Party of Kings County is a county organization of the Libertarian Party of California. Kings County is in Central California. The largest city is Hanford. Other cities include Lemoore, Corcoran, and Avenal.

Libertarians have been sporadically active throughout the history of the Libertarian Party in Kings County. There is limited historical documentation available about the Libertarian Party of Kings County prior to its most recent reactivation, which was guided by Kenneth Brent Olsen.

Activities in recent years have included outreach booths at public events and making public statements providing a libertarian perspective on actions being considered by local governments. In 2016, a Libertarian, Kalish Morrow, ran for the office of Hanford City Council, District B. She ran again in 2020, with Kenneth Brent Olsen as her Campaign Manager. She won the election. Following this, Hanford Councilman from District D Francisco Ramirez became a Libertarian, as did 2018 Hanford City Council, District E candidate Cheyne Strawn.
