Huojia County (simplified Chinese: 获嘉; traditional Chinese: 獲嘉; pinyin: Huòjiā) is a county under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Xinxiang, in the northwest of Henan province, China.

The name Huojia, which means "capturing [Lü] Jia", was used as the county name in 111 BC when Emperor Wu of Han, who on his royal progress at this place, heard Han forces had captured Lü Jia, prime minister of Nanyue kingdom, in the Han–Nanyue War.
