Triumph (French: Ville de Triomphe) is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, United States. It is located on the south bank of the Mississippi River. As of the 2010 census, its population was 216.
The 1960 U.S Census listed Triumph as having a population of 900. Until 2010, the Census did not count Triumph as a separate community, including it as part of the census-designated place (CDP) of Buras-Triumph.
According to tradition, the community was named for its "triumph" over a rival town when they secured a post office.
