The Cincinnati Reds' 1976 season consisted of the Reds winning their second consecutive National League West title with a record of 102-60, 10 games ahead of the runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers. The Reds retained their NL pennant by winning the National League Championship Series in three games over the Philadelphia Phillies, and their second consecutive World Series title, by defeating the New York Yankees in four games, becoming only the second team to sweep a World Series from the Yankees (following the 1963 Los Angeles Dodgers). By sweeping both the Phillies and Yankees, the Reds became the first team to have a perfect postseason since the League Championship Series was started.

Joe Morgan was the NL's Most Valuable Player for the second straight season and Johnny Bench was the World Series MVP. To celebrate the National League's 100th anniversary, the Reds and several other teams adopted pillbox-style caps. The Reds were managed by Sparky Anderson and played their home games at Riverfront Stadiummarker.
