We present Korea Microlensing Telescope Network (KMTNet) light curves for microlensing-event candidates for the 2016 season, which covers an area of 97 sq.deg observed at cadences ranging from Gamma=0.2/hr to Gamma=8/hr from three southern sites in Chile, South Africa, and Australia. These 2163 light curves are comprised of 1856 "clear microlensing" and 307 "possible microlensing" events (including 265 previously released from the K2 C9 field). The data policy is very similar to the one governing the 2015 release. The changes relative to 2015 in the algorithms to find and vet microlensing events are comprehensively described.
