be overlooked

I'm writing a story and my grammar check is going balistic at me. I just wanted to make sure that this is okay:

It was a ceremonious activity, not to be overlooked on any day.

"be overlooked" is being looked down upon by grammar check because it is in Passive Voice. Is it acutally wrong, or is this more of a style thing?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, sounds fine to me too. I think that there is a legitimate point that too many sentences in the passive sounds "clunky" but the occasional one is fine.
