A question about tournaments

Hello,I am really new to fighting games and i wanted to know about tournaments. Besides evo what other big tournaments are there. I know I am no where near ready to compete but I think it would be really cool and being that I’m getting the basics it’s kind of a goal I am setting for myself. Also I live in southern california so if you no any tournaments near there please tell me

Southern California has SoCal Regionals which is a big tournament, and SoCal also has a few places with weekly tournaments to help people level up offline. What city in SoCal are you?

I live in Menifee
