Kexby is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in North Yorkshire, England. It lies on the A1079 about 5 miles (8 km) east of York, on the River Derwent and the present border of the East Riding of Yorkshire. According to the 2001 census the parish had a population of 194.

From 1894 until 1935, Kexby was located in Escrick Rural District. In 1935 the Escrick Rural District was abolished and its place was taken by Derwent Rural District which administered the local area until the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974. From 1974 until 1996, Kexby was in the Selby District of North Yorkshire. In 1996 the City of York, a unitary authority, expanded its borders to include Kexby.

Historically, Kexby was in the ecclesiastical parish of Low Catton in the wapentake of Harthill. (Low Catton was in the Pocklington Rural District.)
