If you were all planning a drunken wild night or a pub crawl I could understand a bit more bc it's not an environment for kids (although as the parents that's your call not theirs), but a BBQ?
They sound anti child and strange to me.

I can think of a number of reasons that they may not want a child there:
-it's really a swingers party and they would just feel too weird swinging freely with a baby around, or...
-they were hoping to induct you into some weird cult, an they were worried that having DS there would distract you from their hypnotic gaze, or....
- they are secretly the 'witches', or...
- they are just plain rude!

I don't think its rude at all to not want kids at a party.

I don't think it's always a bad thing to want an adult only party. But clearly this has been planned and nothing said until an hour before. I know they are childless but surely they realise someone actually needs to supervise the kids thus notice is needed?
If they had said from the beginning, look we would like to have a few drinks guilt free so we thought we might just make it a BBQ for adults. If you can't find a babysitter and can't attend we understand.... then it would have never had this result. The OP could of chosen to either find a babysitter or not attend by her own choice.

I totally think its rude giving them only an hour's notice. But a kid free party is not rude.

I think if it was a child free party thy should've said before hand. Nothing wrong with not wanting kids but say straight up.

Exactly. I don't think the issue is the fact it was a kid free party, I think the issue was more the OP was only given an hour notice AND the way in which it was said and delivered.
Having a kid free party/requesting no kids is not rude... The way these people went about it however, is.

Rude! You make friends with someone with kids you accept that THEY HAVE KIDS!!! Kids are NOT something that should be expected to be palmed off just becausehe you don't have them.
