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.[2]

It is the closest town to two National Historic Landmarks: Fort Jackson (down river from the town; though due to a bend in the river to the north east) and (across the river) Fort St. Philip.

The 1960 U.S census listed Triumph as having a population of 900. Until 2010, the U.S. census did not count Triumph as separate community, including it as part of the census-designated place of Buras-Triumph.

Like most of Plaquemines Parish, Triumph was severely damaged by massive storm surge from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
