14th Avenue South is a street in Birmingham's Southside.

14th Avenue South begins at 10th Street South north of Glen Iris Park. The street jogs slightly north at 12th Street South and again at 14th Street South, where it runs along the south edge of Phelan Park. From there the street continues to 21st Way South, just short of the Elton B. Stephens Expressway. Caldwell Avenue in Highland Park was formerly a discontinuous section of 14th Avenue South.

MAX Transit Route 14 uses 14th Avenue South between 10th and 12th Street. The south side of 14th Avenue, between 15th and 18th Streets, is part of the Anderson Place Historic District.

Caldwell Avenue, which runs between Milner Street and Smolian Place was also considered part of 14th Avenue South until sometime between 1929 and 1937.
