Avenue Fabre is a residential street in the Saint-Louis district of Quebec City, west of the Pierre Laporte Bridge access lanes, between Chemin Saint-Louis and Rue de Chambord.

This street is named in honour of Louis-Roch-Hector Fabre (1834-1910), a lawyer, journalist, diplomat and senator born in Montreal. He was admitted to the bar in 1856 but practised law only occasionally, opting instead for journalism.
