Perched upon the edge of the rolling Illinois prairie is the Village of Bethalto. Low green hills and picturesque farms frame this attractive community of nearly 10,000 residents, one of the three fastest-growing communities in Madison County. The peaceful setting and relaxed lifestyle make Bethalto an ideal place to raise a family. Yet, its close proximity to the rest of the St. Louis metropolitan area means that your family will never exhaust the tremendous variety of cultural opportunities and entertainment nearby.


The next Village Board meeting is December 13, 2021 at 7 pm.

Christmas Village is open each weekend with fun for the entire family.  Also, the Bethalto Victorian Christmas Walk will be December 12th from 4-7pm downtown.  Follow Bethalto Spirit on Facebook for more details on these events.
