The Ribblesdale Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to three-year-old thoroughbred fillies. It is run at Ascot over a distance of 1 mile and 4 furlongs (2,414 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in June.

The event is named in honour of the 4th Baron Ribblesdale, who served as the Master of the Buckhounds from 1892 to 1895. It was established in 1919, and its distance was originally set at 1 mile. During the early part of its history it was open to horses of either gender aged three or four. The race was abandoned throughout World War II, and thereafter its distance was extended to 1½ miles. It was restricted to three-year-old fillies only in 1950.

The Ribblesdale Stakes sometimes features fillies which ran previously in the Oaks Stakes. The leading participants often go on to compete in the following month's Irish Oaks. It is presently contested on day three of the five-day Royal Ascot meeting.
