Vermilion Parish is a parish located in the U.S. state of Louisiana. The parish seat is Abbeville. As of the 2010 census, the population was 57,999.

Vermilion Parish is part of the Abbeville Micropolitan Statistical Area as well as the LafayetteAcadiana Combined Statistical Area.

Vermilion and neighboring Cameron parishes are represented in the Louisiana House of Representatives by the Republican Jonathan W. Perry of Kaplan.

In the past several decades, much of the southern portion of the parish has been swept away by water erosion, especially after Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005. Steps must now be taken to ensure that much more of the parish does not erode later on.
