Evangeline Parish is located in the great state of Louisiana, in the southern region of the United States. Established on October 21, 1910, the parish was carved out of the surrounding parishes of St. Landry, Avoyelles, and Rapides. The parish was named in honor of the Acadian people's heroine, Evangeline, from the famous 1847 narrative poem "Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie" written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
The Acadian people were French settlers who had been forcibly removed from Nova Scotia, Canada, during the Great Expulsion, also known as Le Grand Derangement, between 1755 and 1763. Many of these forcibly displaced Acadians found refuge in Louisiana and formed the Cajun culture, which remains prevalent to this day.
The parish seat is Ville Platte, which is French for "Flat Town." Evangeline Parish is widely known for its rich history, bountiful natural resources, and strong cultural heritage. The area remains largely rural and agricultural, with rice and soybean being the main crops, as well as cattle farming. The parish also boasts several natural attractions such as Chicot State Park and the Louisiana State Arboretum.
One fun fact about Evangeline Parish is that it is the birthplace of the Smoked Meat Festival, an annual event held in June in Ville Platte. The festival celebrates and honors the rich cultural heritage of Louisiana, including the tasty smoked meats that are a staple in the Cajun cuisine. The event features live music, dance, and, of course, plenty of delicious smoked meat dishes to indulge in.
