Drama Glacier (Bulgarian: ледник Драма, IPA: [ˈlɛdniɡ ˈdramɐ]) is the 10 km long and 1.5 km wide glacier on the east side of southern Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica, which is situated north of Carey Glacier and Gabare Glacier, east of the east-northeast ridge of Mount Landolt, and south of Razboyna Glacier. It is draining east-northeastwards to join Rutford Ice Stream northeast of Long Peak.

The glacier is named after the settlement of Drama in Southeastern Bulgaria.
