The Breton Wikipedia (Breton: Wikipedia e brezhoneg) is the Breton language version of Wikipedia, run by the Wikimedia Foundation. It was established in June 2004; as of August 2008 it had over 20,000 articles, making it the 56th largest Wikipedia by article count. It reached 30,000 articles[1] milestone on October 25, 2009 ranking 51st out of 250 languages Wikipedias; as of February 2010 it had over 31,000 articles, making it the 52nd largest Wikipedia by article count and as April 2011 it had over 37,000 articles, making it the 52nd largest Wikipedia by article count. In July 2014 the encyclopedia reached 50,000 articles, becoming the 71st largest Wikipedia by article count.

On January 1, 2017, it had just over 60,000 articles, making it the 73rd largest Wikipedia by article count. It is also the second largest Wikipedia edition in a Celtic language, after the Welsh Wikipedia but ahead of the Irish Wikipedia (even though that language has far more speakers).
