Nestled on the Iberia Parish and Vermillion Parish line in the heart of Acadiana Delcambre, Louisiana was incorporated in 1907. Brothers Charles and Louis Delcambre came from Belgium to settle in the area between the two towns now known as Delcambre and New Iberia. Louis’ son, Poufette Dalcambre, settled further to the west in what is now known as Pouffette Station. Pouffette’s son, Desire Delcambre, was the founder of the town of Delcambre.
Nearly ten years ago in 2005 much of the town was flooded by the storm surge forced inland by Hurricane Rita. Water in many parts of town was up to six feet deep.
The Delcambre Shrimp Festival was originally born as a project to raise funds for the Delcambre Fire Department. The festival has grown so much that it has been listed in the top ten festivals in the State of Louisiana.
