Acadiana Cities, Towns & Communities


There are 22 parishes in Cajun Country and nearly 700 towns and communities! Of course, there are probably about two to four communities per town. Even a city as small as Kaplan with a population of about 5,000 has nearly five communities surrounding it.

CajunCulture.com has an excellent little write up about Acadiana. Just to pique your interest, here’s how the word “Acadiana” was actually coined.

The term Acadiana was coined by accident around 1963, when KATC-TV 3 in Lafayette, owned by the Acadian Television Corporation, received an invoice bearing a typographical error: someone had mistakenly added the letter “a” to the end of Acadian, forming Acadiana. Noting the error, the station’s manager found the new word catchy (particularly as it seemed to combine the words Acadian and Louisiana).
